Stella was part of our family for 10 years. A true blessing, Stella gave unconditional love, filling our days with companionship, joy, and laughter. She was always in someone’s lap and always at the door to greet us when we came home. She loved chasing squirrels, going on walks, eating, and patrolling the backyard. She was always the last one back in the house. On July 5, 2014 she went to see Jesus. Even though our hearts are broken, we have great comfort knowing that Stella will be waiting at Heaven’s gate when we get there.
