    Della was just an amazing woman, I’ve known her for 38 years and learned so much from her. I was so happy to have been part of her journey, even at the end, she leaves behind some wonderful people, who have also inspired me throughout the years. I am so happy for her that at least 3 of the children she gave birth to, and whose first breath’s she witnessed, that those 3 children were there for her to witness her last breath. The circle of life, God bless!

    Hi Lorraine

    We enjoyed knowing your mom in her last years of life. It was really fun to see her have fun with the attendants. We loved her compassion she would show my mom as they would pass by each other in wheelchairs. I remember when I saw them first meet and how they just seemed to like each other right away,

    I pray you may be drawn closer to Jesus through this time, as He cares for you so very much.
