We are so sorry to hear of Estrella's (we always called her Stella) passing. She was such a sweet lady and a good friend for close to fifty years. We will miss her smiling face and yes, her wonderful hospitality and cooking! Our whole family is sending condolences and sorrow that we are not able to get to Erie to share them personally. Sending our love.
