I will miss Della so much. She was a joy to visit.  We would sometimes watch a good western together.  Lukey must be lost without her.  I pray for all the family to be comforted by the Lord Jesus.  She will leave a void in many lives.

Della was a beautiful lady and never looked her age.  We shared many conversations at the Elks Club.  Heartfelt sympathy to her family.
