Terry. Monica. Stella. Your mom was wonderful to me and the girls. Your dad too. She was a great auntie and I have missed her for a long time. Life gets in the way, doesn't it. I hope you all remember the good times. My dad was always so proud of her. Love to you all.

I have fond memories of Aunt Stella, and Uncle Bill, from the times when our families visited each other, and I enjoyed knowing how much she enjoyed dancing with Uncle Bill. It was impressive how long they as a couple went dancing.
