Stella My Dear Friend, It was only recently that we had our last earthly conversation about the trials and tribulations of life. We shared many conversation and laughs and I expected to have many more of those moments but God had a different plan for you. He chose to bring you home to join his heavenly angels. Giving our earthly life trials and tribulations, I am hoping that God allows you to watch over me as life pulls me astray and that I remain as much as humanly possible on the straight and narrow path of life so that one day, I will meet you in heaven. Rest In Peace My Dear Friend, John Aaron (Longtime Quest Diagnostics Co-Worker)
