Stella was an amazing woman who lived a tremendous life. My wife, Laurie and I loved her as a neighbor and, it turned out, a friend. We will miss her dearly and remember her fondly. I am sad that we won't be able to have coffee with her at her kitchen table and listen to the stories she told us about her life, her friends and her family. I hope your many happy memories will help heal your sadness.
