    I am finally looking at my messenger and saw this sad news. Stella, it is so good to hear that you had a good and full life. (50+yrs ago)Thank you for your kindness and mentoring during my growing years when you and Joe used to live with us on the farm. Sorry I borrowed your clothes, but you always had a style to be admired. May God bless and heal our loved ones during this transition time without you. It is true even though you are gone, we will always carry you with us in our hearts and minds.
