Stella was such a wonderful person! We were neighbors for many years. We went to pick strawberries and tomatoes together and she always remembered to bring it up whenever we saw each other when I visited the area. We had many laughs over our harvesting trips. I have a piece of carnival glass that she gave me one time when I was visiting. I cherish it, because she would always call me to come see her and Val's new carnival glass purchases. She dearly loved their collection. She was a sweet person and will be missed!
