Tom and I send our deepest sympathy.
Isabella was a delight to know- and was such a lovely person!
We became friends while we were both in the choir at Frazer UMC.
We also shared interest in her granddaughter ‘s and our son’s activities at St.James School.
We are saddened by the world’s loss of her, but encouraged by the knowledge that she is now with our Lord in heaven!

Many many memories of my childhood center on grandmama's family. I loved the trips to Weaver and the years of reunions later. I loved Isabelle's zest for life and remember her as always happy That smile...that smile...that sweet smile

When I come to the end of my journey And I travel my last weary mile, Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned And remember only the smile.Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done, forget that I ever had a heartache And remember I had loads of fun . Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay And come in the evening When the sun paints the sky in the west, Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best.

Dearest Jeff & Sherrie (and family),

We offer our sincerest condolences for the passing of Isabella. We hope this message comforts you in some small way during this time. She was the loveliest of women with the most beautiful smile. She was kind and easy to talk to. She was just like you, Jeff. We hope you are comforted knowing she is at peace now and in that perfect place...the place we all aspire to get to. She finally has her treasure, because while there were so many incredible blessings here on earth, her full treasure is in heaven with her now. We are thinking of you all, praying for your comfort and peace, and here if you need us. We love you.

So heartbroken that Isabella has passed on to be with Jesus. She and I were close friends while she was a member of the Frazer Choir. We often shared laughter and we were always checking on each other. She always remembered me at Christmas with a sweet gift and on my birthday too. We shared many meals together and she made the best pound cake in the world!!!! She will forever be in my heart as a sweet, Christian lady. She has been missed so much with her illness taking it's toll on her. But Jesus has her in his Arms now and no more suffering.
