As a great nephew of Della, I spent a good deal of time under my grandmother Vertie's dining room table during our summer visits.....attempting to avoid the embraces for "suga". Inevitably she would get her way with the help of her sister Margaret (Janie) and extract what little sweetness I had. As much as I may have protested outwardly, they were always welcome and assuring times as she made you feel so loved.
We will miss her while feeling so fortunate to have been part...
