Isabel's Husband, Daughter's, Son, Grandchildren and family:
I just found out about Isabel passing.There are no words to express how sorry and sad I am about your loss. Isabel was my foster sister in law over 38 yrs ago. Even though we didn't see each other much in those yrs. I thought of her often. She was a loving and caring woman. Her smile was contagious! I had alot of fun times with her. I know how much it hurts and the feeling of loss with out her. Isabel lives on through her children and grandchildren! We have hope in God's promise we will see her again! May God Bless you all and keep you wrapped in his arms comforting your broken hearts.

Kelli, Jamie and Rico, I'm so sorry for your loss. I was just thinking about your mom the day she passed away. About all the good times we had at Head Start. I will miss her smile. God Bless you all.

My deepest sympathy to all the members of Isabel's family.
In my years with the Head Start program, I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Isabel. What a bright and enthusiastic young woman she was; always caring and loving to our preschool children. Her smiling presence brightened everyone's day. Her untimely passing is a loss to us all. I pray that your wonderful memories of Isabel will sustain you through this difficult time.

Words cannot begin to describe what is felt right now. I would simply like to express my sincere condolences to the Archuleta family. May the memories of a beautiful life who gave so much and God's loving promise of seeing Isabel soon bring comfort during this time (John11:25; Isaiah25:8)
