I was so sorry to learn of the loss of Stella. The picture posted of her is so nice and reminds me of her great smile and her laughter when she heard a funny story. The last time I saw Stella was several years ago when she came to my home for a Thanksgiving meal. We had some great conversations, and I always marveled at how well she cared for her husband, Charlie Homer (my cousin), with his most difficult illness. My deepest sympathy to Stella's family. Wishing you comfort and strength at this time and in the days ahead. Rest in peace Stella.
