My sincere condolences to the family. Words are never enough to take away the pain; but we can find comfort in Jehovah God's promises to soon bring our loved ones back to life again, remove all suffering and death forever- Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:3-5. For God promises that we will soon enjoy associations with our loved ones again right here on earth forever- Psalms 37:29. May Jehovah God provide the family with strength and inner peace as you all reflect on his promises and cherish wonderful memories of Stella.

Stella you will be so missed. You touched my heart in so many ways. You were probably the most caring most fun person I have been around and always happy. I will never forget our little drive when you got to drive my charger that day we were visiting and went for pizza. I will say she sure knew how to drive hot rods. Just to see the smile on your face. You will be so missed. Love You

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of sweet Stella. We worked together for many years at Barranco Clinic in Blacksburg. We were like one big family. She was such a kind, caring and thoughtful lady. She will be missed. Love and prayers coming your way.

Sweet Stella you will be missed by so many people. You were always so kind to Jeff and I when we came in to see Dr. Barranco. To the family, God be with you all at this time. Alice and Jeff.

My thoughts, prayers, and love are being sent today to John & Cathi and all of their family as well as Will and all of his family. I am so thankful that I had the good fortune to know Stella. She was such a sweet and genuine person. I'm sure she is "taking Communion" and enjoying a good laugh today with God and her family who have passed before her. Cheers to Stella, you will be missed by all who you have touched.
