So sorry for your lose. What a blessing she has been to many.
Serena is so dear to my heart.
We became friends in 7th grade when I was being bullied and she basically told my bully to get lost, and we were best friends after that.
In 7th grade she used to talk about having a big family…and years later showed me the guy she was going to marry.
Her laugh was infectious and her screams from scary rides got us kicked off. Haha
I feel very blessed to have had her in my life. It was a great honor to call her my friend.
Ben I am so sorry for you and your fanilies loss. I hope you will find peace in the many wonderful memories you had with her.
She was an awesome lady who will be missed.
Dear Bryant and Homer families. Serena was a dear, sweet, fun friend. We became friends in 1988 when the Singles Branch was formed in Kennewick and we enjoyed many fun activities. Over the years we stayed in touch – as our family moved different places. We had girl’s nights where we would get together for dinner and just laugh for hours. Michelle and Serena wrote with chalk on my sidewalk Happy Birthday and for the year we lived there, every time it rained, it showed up! Serena’s laugh and smile was contagious. She was a good friend. She loved her family and friends. She was there to help out at the church five over 5 years ago when we lost our third son who was 21, she was such a support. You will be missed, but never forgotten. Love you, Serena. Donna and Vaughn Young
