Bob, Catherine, and Ed, I am sorry to miss Luella's services. I am out of town. Luella was very special to me. I have learned so much from her both spiritually and practically. She was a good friend and will be missed. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Mrs. Kathleen McBride

I knew Luella through the L.H. Laundy. I was a customer. We became friends and exchanged Christmas Cards. She was a great lady, and I cherished her friendship. She will be missed, but I know she is in God's arms now, and He wanted her home. God Bless!

Dear Gus, Cathy and Ed, I'm so sorry for your loss. Mom was quite a remarkable person. I enjoyed every minute I ever spent with her. ( in person, phone or online) She was and always will be Mom to me and I will miss her very much. With deepest Sympathy, Barbara
