Messages of Condolence

  1. Sharon & family,
    Belle sounds like an amazing woman. I am sad I never knew her and even more sad by what her death has put you through. Please let me know if I can help at all. We have made a donation in Belle’s name to the Capital Area Humane Society to continue her work and honor her life.

  2. Dear Johns family,
    Belle was our daughter’s teacher at Westlake dc
    for many years. Belle helped Chelsea in many ways.
    She also helped us get medical help for her at age 12
    for her behavior problems. Chelsea is now 25 years old.
    We feel blessed to have had Belle in our Daughter’s life.

    Chuck and Barb Rowe

  3. Dear Sharon, Mary & Margaret, My heart goes out to all of you at this terrible loss. Belle had one of the sweetest souls that I have ever known. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you today. Love, Betsy
