Della loved her country music and knew how to dance to any beat!
Della lived for her family and was strong in her faith. She reached out to others, prayed for them and offered guidance. Della was very proud of her country and honored the red, white and blue - she was a soldier who knew how to survive through anything life offered. She will be a true guardian angel in heaven.
