I didn't know Stella personally but I have been a close friend of the family for many years and I want to express my sincerest sympathy. God blessed her with over 90 years on earth and it was time for her to go home. Memories are what you have now, that's the gift she left you. Joyce Snow (Camarillo, CA)

It has been a little while since I last saw Stella, but I am happy that my last images of her were of someone who was alert, could smile and find the humor in life, and always showed unconditional love for her family.

Dear family,
I am one of Julia's grandchildren. I blessed to have the opportunity to visit with Stella twice in my life time. It is a comfort to know that she is once again joined with her sister. With much sympathy - Lisa (daughter to Belva Jean (Flauding) Helm.)
