So sorry to hear of Stella's passing. I went to high school with her. I always thought she had a grace about her as well as being beautiful inside and out. Prayers for her family and friends.

Sorry to read of Stella's passing. Stella was

always referred to as "that nice pretty girl".

Stella would help anyone that needed help, was a

friend to anyone that needed be-friending and her

smile was a blessing to anyone. I remember her

smile all those years ago and I feel sad that she is gone but I know we will see her again one day.

May God Bless Stella til then.
