In our lives we are blessed with meeting many people. When I die and the angels ask me to recall the thrill of them all I shall tell them I remember, Belle.
She was the most remarkable woman I have ever met. Full of love, humility and the best sense of dry humor I have ever known.
She taught me patience, repect and most of all gave me the hope that when I grow older, I be just like her.
She was so smart, full of stories of her past and her parents past. I loved them all, especially "wolf the horse theif"!
She faced death the way she faced life, with determination and dignity.
I will miss our good nights. She always took my hand, smiled and would say sleep tight sweetie pie. I would kiss her hands and say remember those bed bugs...if they bite...what are you going to do. She would laugh and state...bit them back!
Good night my sweet Belle..Good night!
