Sad news from our house. My Sister, Stella, has gone to better places. She is not suffering any more. She had a wonderful life living to be over 100.

Helen and I was with her on Tuesday and said another goodbye.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. There is comfort to knowing she is no longer suffering. However, it is still a sad time, because you will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Hi Ray and Helen Please accept my sympathies. I know it is not easy especially as she was your last sibling as we discussed on chat the other night. You have all been in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your sister Stella. Very tough on those left behind to mourn.

Sure she thought she didn't too bad going over 100 yrs.
