    Life is going to be a little less with you gone. We will miss you. I never got your chocolate cake recipe.

    So sorry for your loss, you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Doesn’t seem that long ago we were talking and hugged in Meijers. What a shock, she was a great friend and lady, she will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear of Della’s passing. She and my cousin Bonnie were good friends and Della would come visit at some of our family holidays. She was such a Hoot! I would bump into Della on occasions in Lafayette and we would talk. She always gave the appearance of being so full of life. My sympathy to all.

    I just want to say, Della, was a very special lady. There was no one like her. My whole family loved her and she will be missed greatly.

    I use to chat with Del at Meijer. She was always so helpful. We found out that we both had dachshunds and would share photos of our precious pups. I hope Pete will find a good, loving home.

    You were a great friend and I will always remember you. Always in good spirits. Love you Della.

    Della was a high spirited lady that spoke her mind. I loved her southern accent and her laugh. She was a people person and she will be missed dearly. My condolences to her friends and family.
