  1. Mirella was a unique lady. I was blessed to share many happy fun times with her. We had many laughs together over the years.
    She was a friend I will always treasure. She loved her famiy.
    I admire her for the strength that she showed during her battle with cancer. She was a brave woman.
    I consider it a priviledge having her for a dear friend for many years.
    May she rest in peace.
    God Bless Mirella’s family.

  • I remember I met Mirella on a casino bus trip. We had lots of fun and laughs.
    She also did a great job cutting my hair.
    My sympathy to the family.
