Ich weiß, du bist uns nur vorausgeflogen,

am Ende dann vom Regenbogen”

I went to school with Brad, and he has kept us updated on beautiful Stella from the beginning of her diagnosis.
My deepest condolences. I am praying for strength as each of you find your way through the coming days.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Ashley, Corey and Michael for your precious Angel little Stella.
I and my husband came to know about little Stella 4 and a half years ago when her Great Grandmother, Judy Cox shared with us about her Cancer issue. We have prayed for her each day and ask our dear Jesus to be with her for comfort and peace and he was. We never got to meet her but knew she was a very special child of God.
Ms Stella touched many people and children in her short life here on earth and will not be forgotten.
Jesus loved the little children and she is one that has now come to him to share again with many children on heaven.
Michael, I know you had a special relationship with your little sister.
I am sure and she will always be in your heart to recall those special memories. God bless you for being her special friend and brother.
God bless you all in the very difficult time you are going through.
You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
In Stella I saw a powerfully inspiring and beautiful life. And your family has been an amazing example of poise, courage, and strength through pain and sacrifice. May God bless you all as she smiles at you.
Corey, Ashley & Michael,
We have absolutely loved getting to know your sweet girl Stella Ann. She was an incredible child & will be greatly missed by all. Praying for you in this incredible time of loss. I am sure she is singing & dancing in heaven. Probably helping other kids who have left their families way too soon.
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family.
Ashley, Corey, Michael and Debbie, please know so many thoughts and prayers have been with you and will continue as you navigate the coming days. I feel blessed to have gotten to know Stella and your family and witness your strength and love for each other.
Corey, Ashley, and Michael- I am so deeply sorry. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am truly so sorry. I am very grateful to know your family.
Our hearts are with you all for the loss of little Stella. No words can express our sadness from her passing. Such a precious soul she had for all those she loved and loved her. Love always Rod, Noreen and Frieda Nichols
Ashley, Corey and family- our prayers have been uplifted to Christ since we learned of Stella’s cancer. Her trials are over and she is in the loving arms of our Savior. God bless.
Words escape me every time I sit down to write. Matt and I both have very tender feelings towards Stella. She changed us just watching her and your family, close up and from afar, fight this battle and live and love all at the same time. Much love from Texas.

Corey and Ashley, I am KaTreasa’s sister, Kim.
I felt compelled to send this message in your unimaginable time of grief.
You have my deepest sympathy. I pray the Lord keep you and your family covered. I pray that, although Stella’s time here was brief, your cherished memories with her will begin to outweigh the grief.
I have never met you all in person, but through KaTreasa, I feel connected to your family.
Please encircle Corey and Ashley in their grief. Cocoon them within Your Arms of Love, whisper heavenly truth into their souls and keep each fragment of their broken hearts safe. When we are in pieces your presence will keep us. So I lay them in Your strong Arms Jesus. Come carry them. Watch steadily over them day and night. May they come to know that their beloved child is safe with You.
Dear Ashley, Corey and Michael and all your family. You surrounded Stella with love, care, compassion, joy, family, friends and all life could give her in her time here on earth. The loving arms of God and those who have gone before will carry her now. May God grant you peace in the days ahead. Stella will be forever remembered.
Our deepest condolences to the entire Henry family. Please know how loved you all are and how your precious little girl touched many lives near and far! May God bless you all! ❤️
Stella is a light of joy and love that will live on in my heart. We were always so happy to see Stella “driving” her car in front of our house on family walks, or her signature smile and wave every time she’d see us. It’s amazing to me, so incredibly humbling, to know that in a world of over the top flashiness and spectacle that one little girl could make such a difference in the lives of so many. We love you Henrys – we will miss you, Stella!
Liebe Ashley, Corey und Michael, wir senden euch unser aufrichtiges Beileid und beten für euch. Der kleine Engel ist jetzt im Himmel, zusammen mit allen unseren Familienmitgliedern die uns vorausgegangen sind. Wir senden euch viel Kraft und herzliche Umarmungen. Eure Familie aus Deutschland.
My heart is with all of you during this most difficult time. Stella made a terrific impression of love and goodness upon all who met or knew her. Much love to all.
Corey, Ashley & Michael-
My family and I are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Stella was such a fighter and had such courage. She has made such an impact on those around her and will continue to do so even now. God be with you and your family as you navigate the upcoming days. Continue to lean on those around you and reach out.

I have never met your family, but I know Beth Ramirez and she posted about your sweet little girl. I just wanted to let you know that although I don’t know you- I am praying for you and your family. I know that to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ. I can’t imagine the pain you are going through but if it were to happen to me I know I would have comfort in hearing that my baby is with our Heavenly Father, her creator, and she is happily awaiting the day of your reunion in Heaven. I pray for you all to have comfort and peace and to know that many are praying for you.
You know we are thinking of you every day. Be strong, remember to take of yourselves at this time. Our very best to you all! Stella, take care love!
