The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

At this difficult time for the family in dealing with the death of your dear LuDella Nielson, please accept my sincere condolences. As the family bond together and comfort each other, may the words of Jesus at Revelation 21:3,4, which assure us that death will be done away with, bring your family added comfort.

To Della's family,
I'm so very sorry to learn of Della's passing. Over the years we would come in contact with each other and it was always as if we had never been apart. She was such a gracious hostess when I would perform at her home for her different club meetings. I know, for certain, that she will be missed by other people who could feel of her goodness. My love and prayers go out to her family.
Sending love, Sandra Lemmon Orton
