    Love and Prayers for all the family. Aunt Belle will be remembered as one of the most Christian and God loving persons I have ever known and always had a beautiful smile. I will always remember the Easter I went to the church program with her, it was the best and most special and memorable Easter program I have ever seen. So many summers spent visiting her and Uncle Ivan's house. I know they are really happy to be together again. Love all of you.

    I will always remember visiting my Aunt Bell at her white house. I loved smelling the scent of her grape vines. Aunt Bell always had a smile and was ready to feed me something delicious. I will miss you, Aunt Bell.

    Belle was a beautiful person, kind and compassionate. I never heard an unkind word from her about anyone. She was always helpful in her soft spoken way, and encouraging in hard times to me personally. We were blessed to have her in our church. Love and prayers to the family. (Proverbs 28-31)

    Every time that I saw Aunt Belle she would have bright eyes when I brought my Mother (Ruth) into the home to see her. When they were both together there was love there. When my brother and I was at their house we always enjoyed being with the kids. I loved my grandfather, grandmother and all our aunts and uncles. But at last year and now I will miss my mother and aunt Belle. The complete is loved.

    Such a sweet, humble, loving Christian lady. Belle was my Primary Class Sunday School teacher, and all these many years later, I remember that. Belle was quiet, kind and loving. She blessed many of us with her sweet ways. Condolences to the family, while she will be sorely missed, rejoice that she's finally home.
