    Della will miss you so you were there for my daughter DeLiese and grandson Josiah. Life brings so many unexpected gifts because I knew you and Diane before met your brother Manuel and married almost 20 years and you and your family open your arms to me like family, even before I married your brother always accepted you as family. I enjoyed the times we spent together. You truly were a blessing to me. Love and will miss you Della.
