Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Deepest sympathy to the Belle family on the loss of a loved one. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. Patricia, UK - Posted by: Patricia (Cousin) on: Sep 26, 2020

  • Elsa and family, so sorry for your loss, Elsa, it has been many years since we have seen each other, but I met your mom when I worked at a retail healthcare products store, and the first time your mom came in and gave me her name, I asked her right away if she was related to you, as you were the only Belle I knew growing up, your mom was such a blast when she came in, it was always more like a visit from a friend than a client! My thoughts are with you and your family at this time, hold on to the memories, good times and know you have an angel looking over you. - Posted by: Karen Dunbar (Butt) (Old school friend) on: Sep 26, 2020
