Isabella's Memorial Fund

On November 27, 2014, Isabella passed away unexpectedly as she slept. God, in His infinite wisdom, blessed Isabella with a mommy trained in homeopathy, knowing she would benefit from that compassionate care. During Bella's 8 precious years, she lived a joyful and happy life, riding horses, creating art, giggling, and stealing kisses.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
~Mary Elizabeth Frye
