She was a great lady that I loved very much . She had a special place in my heart. She will be missed by many.

Heaven gained a very special lady. I know JL was so happy to see her again. Ma Della was a big part of my childhood and into my adult years. I will never forget us singing together at church and I will hold on to the thoughts of her now singing with the angels in Heaven. Sending my love and prayers to her family. - Annette Spivey & family
