Della dear, You were the most colorful of loving mothers of us all always including mankind like your beloved Stan, children, grandchildren And friends forever beyond my time Of accepting your passing leaving us soon With our legacy to serve the Lord Even as we all sometimes are naughty even as we submit to being duty bound to make peace With the father of us all who reigns Supreme as he has embraced Your joyful loving spirit now passed Beyond our confinement to our Earthly service To the Lords will that we all continue to serve the father without question as you did as we all embraced your joy that you left behind with all of us who are blessed to know you and Stan and family. God bless you all, Love Zoe and Harold Schuitmaker

Della was always happy to see friends and family. We will truly miss her. She loved her wildlife and home. I will be watching for a new cardinal to visit us and we know it will be Della.

Della was my cousin that I haven't seen in many years. I always loves her first way of doing things. She will be missed.

Twenty years ago I had the privilege of meeting Mary, and soon after Della! Della became somewhat of a mother figure throughout the years whom we all came to love very much! Yes, her mouth was very forward and her stubbornness could be quite irritating, however this is Della! You come to love her nonetheless! An Angel is back home with her lord while we remain to miss her! I love you Big D!

I still considered Della my sister in law, Della was so full of life and laughter. She was a spit fire that's for sure. Love you girl <3 till we meet again, fly high. Love Dee Lacey-Wyman
