Thanks, Melanie!  She loved you also and enjoyed time with your kids.

I had the honor of calling Stella my friend after being asked to care for her. We enjoyed great conversations, shared family memories while spending our time watching TV.  I teased her endlessly about her torturing me by watching her "story". I know that she is enjoying being reunited with loved ones in beaven. Hugs & Prayers to her family! 💜
