The Menas, Kingfishers and Burchells have now become one family in many respects. From the Menas attending Krissy’s wedding to Curtis coming to the graduation of Isela’s other daughter, they are part of each other’s lives.
“We have a very strong connection,” Mena said. “In fact, it’s not just once a year, we talk all the time. Curtis has gone down to California to meet the rest of the family. We keep in contact by phone just like we do with Krissy and her mom. They are a blessing in my life.”
