Dear Corirossis,

I only recently heard of the passing of my beloved friend and former therapist. My heart and condolences go out to you. I wanted to send you a copy of my guest book entry on the Tribune page (please see below). I look forward to celebrating her life with you all on the 14th.

Thank you very much,

Lisa Fairman

Della single handedly changed the way I live my life, but she would always make me believe I was responsible. Loving, sharp-witted, big-hearted, she would tell me she loved me after our sessions, hug me, tell me I was a warrior. She helped make changes in the way I think and make decisions that will stay with me for the rest of my life. She was also hilarious. Della made going to the supermarket and adventure. If she could do that, I have no doubt she is embracing this new chapter in her consciousness with open arms. She was a one-woman revolution.
