    Luella will truly be missed. I looked forward to caring for her as well as our visits when I wasn’t. She was always interested to know how I was and my family, rarely ever complaining about herself. She was a strong woman of true character with a beautiful personality. I consider myself blessed to have known her. God bless the family and many friends she had made her own.
