I remember Stella fondly and am sorry for your loss. Stella and I worked at Frys together in the 1980s and she always treated me with kindness and respect even if she didnt always approve of the decisions I made. We shared many laughs and cigarettes together and I will always remember her lovely smile. My heartfelt condolences to her family.
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Cor 5:8

Even though today is my birthday, and a day of celbration, my heart is broken. This lovely woman helped to put together a wedding in Tucson, Az. almost 32 years ago on December 18, 1956 for a young lady who was marrying a GI who was stationed in Kansas at the time. She helped with love and guidance to make it smooth as possible for this young lady who was not getting help from her own Mother. Well, almost 32 years later, 3 children 25 year old Daughter, 23 year old Daughter, 20 Year old Son, and 2 Grandchildren 4 year old Grandson and 4 year old Granddaughter, Michele and I are going strong. God truely has a new Angel now, and soon we will all meet again in the place prepared for us in our Fathers house. We Love you Stella, and will never forget you.We mourn your passing, but celebrate your loving and giving life.
