So sorry to hear of Isabella's passing. My condolences to her family. I knew her long ago when she lived on Black Lake and went to Hammond school. She was always friendly and lady-like. And hated to be called Izzie. RIP, lady.

Dear Family,
I am sharing grief and sadness with you today over the passing of of Isabella. We have had a few conversations over the past few years. What a wonderful lady to have known. She would always show me a smile every time I visited her. My Grandsons would often accompany me on Sunday afternoon to visit. She sure loved her owls of every shape and size. They were important to her. I am sorry for your loss and will be thinking of you as you grieve. I am sure she is with the Angels and singing right now. Take care of yourselves especially during these uncertain times.
