Della, I am saddened to hear about your Mother’s passing. You have done a remarkable job caring for her. She was a precious lady and now she the angel who is watching over you again just like she did when you were a baby. All I can do is smile when I think about her. She just was so kind and cute. She always had a smile on her face.
Sending you my condolences and prayers
God bless you and your family.

It is often said that "It takes a village to raise a child". Ms. Maggie was part of that village and she played an important role in raising the kids on Blossom Dr. I and others will definitely miss her smiling face. Erica, Rudy, Nathaniel, Della, and Mike..sorry for your loss and stay strong.

Deepest sympathy to the Sullivan family in your loss. Mrs. Sullivan was a jewel I spent countless hours at the home when I was growing up. Even in adult hood I would stop and see her in the yard or sitting on the porch and I would blow my car horn and she would always have a smile and wave her hand .I will miss seeing her she has her wings another angel that heaven has gained.
