Mary and I are shocked to hear of Aunt Isabell passing. She has helped me so much over the years that I would do anything for her and Uncle Paul. The next time you hear thunder and see lighting there’s a family reunion going on. God Bless.

I remember Aunt Isabelle as a perfect housewife and devoted to Uncle Polly and her girls. I can’t believe she was 90 years old. I’ll always remember her as being young..
