  1. Della and Ed, I will never forget when I first met your mom at the women’s program at work. She was so beautiful and I really enjoyed talking with her. I know Dave liked talking with her on the phone about her Alaska trip you all took. She was a woman with sweet spirit and she was always ready to go do whatever. Love you. Sherry and Dave

  2. Della, I know how much you loved you mom – and how much she loved and depended on you. It was always a delight to visit her and see her face light up – making me feel so special just to be in her presence. You were blessed with a very special mom and I know her love will carry you through for the rest of your life. Hugs sweet girl.

  3. Our deepest condolences to the family of Lois. Always remember Lois as a very caring person,beautiful person both inside and out. Enjoyed seeing her when we would go to grand chapter for Eastern Star. She always enjoyed it when Tom and I would take her to lunch, until she could no longer go. We will miss her very much.

  4. Della and Donna a world of hugs and prayers to you and your family. Your Mom was an enormous influence on us Dodd kids. She inspired me to write. I always felt at ease and welcomed in her home.
