    Della my dear -- I know you are warmly embraced in Heaven.. but your love of your children, your compassion for others, and your strength no matter how severe your challenges... makes you forever embraced here on earth as well. All our prayers are with you... Michael, Leonie and Brandon Naylor

    We'll miss your presence in our offices, Della; always warm, inviting, and full of good humor. But your spirit will always live in that space and we're happy for those that you'll meet and rediscover in your new home. They're very fortunate to be able to welcome you there. --Charles and Debbie Taylor

    Dearest Della, I will always remember your generous spirit and kind heart. Your wisdom, guidance, and support were such a blessing to me when I was working in CSP. I will miss your smile, your quiet laugh, and your positivity. I know you are singing with the angels. I pray for comfort and peace for your family.

    I am tremendously saddened by Della's passing. She was very important when the two of us worked Bridge together. She was always a hard working sweet lady who made Bridge "work" and CSP will miss her contributions. We used to share stories about our children. She will be missed and will be remembered forever. Dr. Ralph Story

    To Cindy and Family we give our deepest sympathy. We'll be keeping the family in our prayers.

    I am truly going to miss your smile,, the gracefiul way you talk, your post on Facebook, and the telephone conversations. But now your spirit will live for ever with our heavenly father. Love you sis so much.

    I had the privilege of working with Della in my years with the University; and more directly with CSP. I appreciated her love of heels and warm personality. My prayers to the family. I know she is resting in the arms of her heavenly father.

    May the Lord bless you and your family doing this time. May He bring you peace and an up lifted heart.

    Goodbye to one of the strongest and most serene women I have been honored to know. Working with her was a gift I will always treasure. She handled every problem with grace and was always there for the staff and students as we moved through our days. She will be remembered by many for a very long time.

    Praying that God will give you the peace of above all understanding. Praying that God will hold your entire family ever so close in his loving arms at this time of bereavement and the days to come without your loved one. You have my deepest condolences. Tish

    I have known Della as a colleague in CSP since 2000. Della was a help, a friend and a welcoming soul since I first met her. I will miss you, girl. Rest easy.

    To Della’s family I would like to express my deepest sympathies for your loss. Della was the epitome of helpfulness, kindness and grace. Her commitment to serving the students, staff and faculty in her work was an outstanding model for all of us. CSP and Bridge were blessed to have Della.

    I will always remember Della as gracious and calming. I worked with her the entire time she was employed at CSP. During our Holiday Party in December 2016 I remember wanting to help clean up because she had worked so hard to organize our gathering and make it a special day. She also was always there to help us during our graduation ceremonies. Della is in my heart and I will never forget her kindness and wisdom.
