Our Sincere Condolences

Dear Ronnie, Dan & Scott,
Please accept my most sincere condolences on Della’s passing on Monday.   She will be greatly missed as she was ALWAYS kind and cheerful along with being so generous with her time and considerable talents.  May your decades of wonderful memories and her leadership in living life to its fullest make it possible to begin the healing where now there is great angst caused by her absence.  She set a very high bar for those of us who are still here.  Please keep me up to date as plans for the celebration for her life so well lived come together.
