Rico, I am at a loss for adequate words to express my sadness for you and your family. I had the blessed opportunity of knowing your mom on her visits to Sacramento. I know heaven just received one of the most special angels. You and your family are a reflection of Della in the way you treat people with respect and empathy. Rico, you have made each and every person you met feel dignified, accepted, loved, and special. I'm sure Della (and your Dad) had a lot to do with that upbringing to instill those qualities within you. I am so very sorry for your loss. "The love of a mother is the veil of a softer light between the heart and the heavenly Father." --Samuel Taylor Coleridge. May you find peace in the memories of the incredible woman she was.
I was blessed to get to have Della as my prayer partner when I was in confirmation at Grace. She was a lovely and amazing woman who I have such fond memories of. My thoughts and prayers are with Chuck and his family at this time.
Della will always hold a special place in my heart! We developed a wonderful camaraderie during my time at HealthEast. She will be missed and I will always remember her with a smile. Chuck and Rico, you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.
All my sympathy for the loss of your mother.
Rojean and Tom, I'm very sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayer are with you and your family.
