To Mrs.Zenaida's family. My name is Debra Martin, my daughter's name is MSGT. Courtney K. Newsome. We would just like to let you know the kind person your mother was and how we adored her. My daughter met her through me and it was love at first sight. We had good times together. When my daughter worked at the Embassy in Lebanon, she sent me a jacket and expressed to me that it was for Mrs. Zenaida. When daughter was trying to find a spice that she truly liked, while she was on vacation, she brought this spice back to my daughter. We will miss her kindness, wisdom and joy that she always shared. Thank you for all for being the products of such a wonderful woman.
