    My deepest sympathies in the loss of Aunt Della. I will always remember her as a strong, courageous and beautiful spirit. Many fond memories of visits to Brookline when we were all children to see Grandma and Grandpa. May she rest in peace as she well deserves. With love, respect and honor to her always.

    As we, the family, mourn the loss of Aunt Della, we will never forget her humorous ways and the gut wrenching laughter she caused us to endure. We will never forget her love for it ran deep. We all will smile when we think of her for she wouldn't have it any other way. Aunt Della you have won the race! Now enjoy Heaven with all the greatness it has for you. I will always keep you in my heart and LOVE you forever. Your niece, Lara
