    I will never forget the kindness and compassion that Armand showed my parents and our whole family. Also, the love and devotion that he had for his wife, Gayle, his parents, his son, Michael, and his grandchildren was something that will always stay with me. Armand will be missed all who knew him. Although I grew up a diehard White Sox fan, I was so happy for him and his family that he got to experience the Cubs winning the World Series. My deepest sympathies go out to Michael and Chris, Bob and Donna, and Nancy and Rich and all their children.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Stella. As one of his nurses, I had many lovely conversations with him. He was always so friendly and gracious. He loved talking about his travels, food and his family. He was very proud of his son and family. The entire Infusion Department at St James Olympia Fields was greatly saddened and will miss him dearly. May he rest in piece.
