Stella, you will be missed but forever in my heart. You were more then a ex-mother in law, you were my mom. We had our differences but we always over came them. May you rest in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ and until we meet again. I love you..

She was one of the most special people in my life. She was my Granny. She was my safe at times in my life, an ear to always listen if there was a problem, and a second mother in every since of the word. She was kind, caring, hospitable, compassionate, and most of all loving. Its been a hard road for my family and I this last hand full of years. I know she's at peace now and even though I am grateful that she is no longer in any pain Im also selfish in wanting her here because I didn't get to tell her goodbye. I love you with every fiber in my body and soul, Granny. Know that you are loved and will be missed tremendously. One day Ill see you again, until then Ill see you when I dream.

Richie
