To the entire Nick and Juanita Cina family and their kids and their kids’ kids,
Our Moms (Juanita and Louise) grew up together as sisters and kept that bond and love for each other throughout their lives. Uncle Nick was like a father and brother to our mom (Louise.) We (Bender kids-Greg, Roxanne, and Lynn) were raised together with you Cina kids. As Aunt Juanita would always say… “you kids are 1st cousins once removed.” But…we were and still are more than cousins!
We are sending you all prayers and comfort during this difficult time. We love you all dearly.
From the families of Louise and Byron Bender
