The family would like to offer a special thank you to Della’s long-term caregiver Eva Fernandez for such great dedication and care for Della over the last 10 years. We would also like to thank Della’s past caregiver and friend, Arvinder Hanspal for being there when Della needed her most.
To Dr. Vicki Penny for your support and care of our Della. You went far beyond what anyone would expect, providing such excellent medical care for Della in our home.
During these unprecedented times, it was decided a celebration of Della’s life will be held at a later date.
