We love you and will miss you greatly. I know my grandma has another angel to share her laughter with now.

A great lady. Sgt Landry and her made sure we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner while stationed over seas. She will always be remembered along with her family. They were always good to his troops under his command. Heaven will no doubt be a brighter place with her presence.

Heaven has definitely gained an angel. Another godly woman/mother/grandmother/friend to watch over us. A blessing to have known her.

My sincerest condolences to all of the Landry Family at this time. I will be praying for the family during your time of bereavement. May you find comfort in the knowledge that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

Mrs Landry replaced the Mother's of the troops under Sgt Landry command during Thanksgiving. Her and Sgt Landry had them to join them and family while stationed in Germany. An act of kindness that was never forgotten. Hearts of gold. "Jealous of the Angels" by Donna Taggart

Please accept my sincere condolences and prayers for Gods comfort during this time. Aunt Della was such a loving Aunt & mentor to me. She always showed me the love of Christ and had great wisdom to share. She will always hold a special place in my heart. I love you Aunt Della. -Lori

"Grandma Della" as all the kids at Dundas Baptist affectionately knew her, left a mark on each of the children that she taught in Sunday school. She had such a loving and gentle way with the children. She taught me how to be a Sunday School teacher. We spent a lot of time together co-teaching in Sunday School and Bible School. I have been so blessed to know her. I look forward to the day that we can spend time together in heaven. I know she is happy where she is - with Jesus and all the little children. So to the family I say, whenever you are sad at the thought of her passing just picture her there with the little children and your spirit will be lifted. Linda Jenkins
