MANSFIELD: "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." Although soft-spoken and kind, Della Mae had a fierce light within her. And now, free of her earthly body, it's shining brighter than ever.
