    Pamela and family, I feel so very sorry for this loss you have suffered. I met Stella a few times and her graciousness and wit sure made an impression. A wonderful lady who obviously played a part in how Pamela developed into a strong and independent woman of integrity. Praying you all find great comfort in knowing Stella hurts no more.
    Deepest condolences.

    My condolences to all the family members. I had met Stella many years ago when Tammy, Pamela and I were younger and living in Hornings Mills. Hugs to all of you.
