My condolences for your loss. I have fond memories of walking all the way to Ms Bel's house to trick-or-treat cause I knew she always had something good to give us. May she forever live on in your memories.

Mrs. Belle you were a special person and I loved you from the first time we met. You reminded me of my Mother. Always so kind and gentle of heart. Kids know that your mom loved you all very much. She is now Resting In OUr Lord's Loving arms. Looking at you and hoping you won't grief too much knowing that she is with Her God.

To the family of Mrs. Belle you have our deepest sympathy, our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. I know how difficult this time can be, but try to remember all the wonderful times you shared together. I will always have a special place in my heart for Mrs. Belle as I had become close with her. It was just too hard for me to go see her after Louise passed.I miss decorating for them,they both enjoyed it so much and i enjoyed doing it for them. I have not eaten a chocolate frosty in quite sometime, but I always think of Mrs. Belle and Louise when I do. I really miss both of them. Try to be strong and know that she is resting in peace. She was a very special lady to me.
