    Grandma Stella was such an amazing grandmother- especially expressed by her granddaughter Lexi. I remember Lexi showing photos of her grandmother in grade school and everyone in the class laughing and smiling saying how cool Grandma Stella was. I was in Grandma Stella’s home one summer day and she offered me a plate of food- right from the start! She was so thoughtful and kind! Here I am- first time ever meeting her face to face in her own home and she made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. She broke down that “awkward” wall and had me chatting up a storm with her and Lexi about life- as if I was a part of their family. Thank you for that. I know you will be dearly missed. XOXO
