First I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to all of Stella's family especially her special children and grandchildren that I carry close to my heart.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Stella over the years and share secrets between her and I. Stella was a wonderful grammy and mother and most of all a friend. I will cherish all the moments that I got to spend with her and her family. I will continue to pray for Stella. Love you always!!

Love,
Tish
