We are sorry to hear of Rella's passing. She was a good neighbor and a friend. Her generous laughter was sunshine on a cloudy day. She was a great date when June needed a restaurant companion and a fantastic 5th at the card table. We will put all of her family in our prayers. A special thanks to Brenda and Bob for their kind attention for those many years.
