  3. Kyle and Josh, Saul and family. My heart breaks for both of you. I am so happy that I got to know Lenir over the years. I will cherish the visits and phone calls and will always remember her as a kind, caring, gentle person who loved her family and friends. She put up a tremendous fight with her illnesses and her will to live was amazing. There were other plans for her, and I can only hope that the good memories quickly fill the huge holes that are in your hearts today where she will live forever. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Although the pain never goes away, it certainly lessons as time goes on. Sending huge hugs your way. Love Mike.
