She was always a charming woman to be around. Sorry to hear of her passing. I know her memory will always be a blessing to her family.

It is with my deepest sympathy that I write this message to your family. While physical location did not allow me to know her personally, I always felt a connection with her through my mother, her niece, Sheila. When I was married, my mother provided me with names and addresses of my relatives – Aunt Isabelle was one of those people. Her kindheartedness always remembered special events in my life and those of my family. She was conscientious to send a Christmas card each year to let me know she was thinking of me, which was greatly appreciated. I understand that she had a good life and loved her family. May each of you find peace and comfort through your fond memories of her. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time.

“Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.” Psalm 105:4
