Less than 4 days after i landed at Incirlik you kidnapped me ensuring I got out of the house and experienced the various activities on the Air Base. You keep this old souls out way beyond my bedtime. It all started from a television purchase. That was the beginning or our life long bond. Whenever and wherever, you know i will be there. I am only a call, text, email away. You are indeed God sent. Please take care and enjoy life.
Im so thankful for you coming into my life. When I was coming to Incirlik I didn't think it would be this easy to be expected into a family and make friends. But you made me feel at home, it sucks that l'm losing one of my family members. But i wish you the best and see you in the States.
Boss Lunsford!!! Lol. I miss your face! Thank you for being a wonderful friend, for all the laughs, food, and the overall genuine care! Thank you for opening your heart to all of us! *bug hugs*
Where has the time gone? The ‘Lik would’ve been such a different place without you. So many amazing memories — mingles, Game of Thrones, Starbucks, community center activities, Spaniard sightings and on and on. You brought people together, opened up your home and heart and became family. Love you lady! Your ride and die sister — Carmelita
Thank you for your endless smiles and lots of love. I will always cherish our time together and I’m so grateful for your friendship. I love you woman! Thank you for being my family!
Serena, thank you so much for your kindness since I first got here. You are an amazing person that truly cares about those who surround you. I will surely miss your friendly demeanor. You are one in a million. See ya! Danielle 🤗
Serena, it's been a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for everything! I look forward to seeing you again.
Serena, I would like to thank you for all that you did for me, including all the times you fed me 🤣. We are truly going to miss you! Good luck with your next adventure and hopefully our paths cross again.
Serena, our paths have crossed during 3 assignments on 3 continents, I am wishing you all the best and much success in your next adventure. Thank you my travel buddy. May god continue to bless you.
Serena, words cannot express how grateful I am to have crossed paths with you on this crazy journey. Thank you for opening your home and your heart to me. I have enjoyed traveling, laughing, eating, and everything in between with you. I wish you the best of luck and know that this place will definitely not be the same without you. Until we meet again!😘
Serena...my sister! There are NO words to tell you how much you mean to me! I had only been in Turkey for a couple of weeks when you arrived. We became fast friends and created so many lasting memories. You sincerely became and will always be my sister! I have so many great memories from my year over there and you are a part of them all. Much laughter and a few tears but most importantly it was together. Pool days, coffee and simit runs, carpet store visits, GoT, great meals, Reeses peanut butter cups with popcorn, wreath making, wine glass painting, neighborhood mingles...so many things. You were my sounding board and my safe place to land when I was missing my family back home. I love you more than you can know and can't wait to see you on this side of the world! xoxo
Serena! The woman who came into my life and definitely made it better. You are the most loving, inviting, selfless, person I ever met. You give your heart and you give it without wanting anything in return. This past year I not only gained another friend, I gained a sister for life. I’m truly lucky to have you and I wish nothing but the best for you. I can’t wait for all of your dreams to come true because no one deserves it more. Can’t wait to see you. Love always❤️
Serena!!!! You were definitely one of my favorite people at Incirlik! You have the biggest heart and such a warm personality. I miss our lunches at the club at "your table". Yes, you were the "Godmother", Lol!
I will always remember my birthday surprise, Thanksgiving at your house and the holiday mingles. You are a fun person and brought so much life to the "Lik" personally and professionally. I'm so glad you'll be back in the states. I will definitely visit you! Friends always, Valencia ❤ P.S. I'm so glad you got to go home and be near your family.
Serena, you are one-of-a-kind and an amazing person. From the first day I arrived at Incirlik, you pulled me in like I was family. There is not enough words to explain the impact that you have had on me and on other people, because you give everyone your whole heart ❤️. From the events you ran, to inviting people in your home for good food, laughs and relaxation, you treated everyone as family. You are a true friend, sister and someone who will tell it like it is 🤣 thank you for being there for me always! And even though you would make fun of my shortness and certain nicknames 🍀, it was out of love and probably personal amusement. I have unforgettable memories with you...from long conversations to coffee runs, Bingo, puzzles, movie marathons, Cyprus, cooking, chocolate chip cookies 🍪, and more. Excited for your next adventure and Kirkland better be ready!! Love you for life my sister!! Can’t wait to see you 😉🤪
“A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.” Proverbs 27:9
Dearest Aunt (teyze) Serena,
You have selflessly invited us into your tribe, and I am forever grateful for your friendship and kinship. As the countdown draws near, I am deeply saddened to see a hallmark of Incirlik connectivity leave, but I pray those in your path will cherish and esteem you. Your compassion, honesty, talents, thoroughness, and the endless fun you bring to life will be our everlasting memory! Here is to virtual date nights, now unmasked! “We love you so much! Kisses and hearts, kisses and hearts, kisses and hearts! Eenie feenie finie oonie wahwah!” Love, Your Twinsie (and her tagalong Mom) ❤️😉
My amazing Serena...How lucky am I to have someone so special in my life? Getting to know you has been truly an honor. Thank you for your love, kindness, compassion, realness and thank you for not only being a friend, but a sister! Just know that I will forever be in your corner! I love your beautiful soul! I’ll see you very soon!
This coin is dedicated to an amazing woman. She loves with her whole heart. Serena has become more than just a friend me. She’s my sister. She’s the type of person that will tell you how wrong you are and you don’t get mad. You don’t get mad because you know it’s coming from a place of love. When you come to her home she makes you feel like it’s your home. She will bend over backwards for you. Serena I will miss the make dinners, the Sunday breakfasts, the jewelry, the talks and everything in between. But most of all I’ll miss you, your presence, and your unbelievable love for those you call family. Thank you for being a sister to me and I can’t wait to continue this ride. All the trips, all the talks, all of Serena!!! Thank you beautiful and don’t worry I’ll still harass you as if you were here. Love you!!!!
