    Jim, I am so sorry to hear about Stella, the last few years have been hard on her and now she is at peace. She had been friends with my mother for as long as I can remember and Mom always talked so highly of her. Even though you and I have talked about this day coming it is still a shock when it is actually gets here. I'm so sorry I am not there right now to help you through this. I'm so glad you got the planters so Darcey can have one to take home. Georg and Penny, Know that you both are on my mind as well and I am sending prayers for your family. If you need to talk you both have my number.
