So very sad by this news. Prayers and love to her family. Aunt Lela was a part of my life for almost all of my life. I will never forget the wonderful trip I was blessed to take across the country with her when I was 13. We saw everything from Niagara Falls to my first visit to Texas. She was a Blessing to my and my family, even our children were blessed by her sewing and craft skills with many gifts and surprises. She will live in my heart and my memories forever.
