Words cannot express how much Belle was loved and the sorrow we feel at your loss. I know she lost out to a terrible disease a long time ago and ceased to be the Belle we knew. She loved her church and the people in it as well as her family. I take consolation in knowing that when we meet again she will be waiting for us with her sweet smile and loving arms.

Prayers and love to you all,

Leigh, Steve & Ian Foster

I've known Belle ever since I was young. We worked together at the sewing plant under McCommons building. She was a precious lady and I hope the family knows how many lives she touched. My sympathy goes out to Richard and the children. It's hard to let go but rest assured that she's dancing the streets of Heaven right now and she'll always be with you.
