  1. Since January 2017 I visited Belle most weekends for a few hours, right up till last Saturday, when she was in fine spirits and happily admiring a baby girl who is living in the house, too. Bell lived in Southern Berkshire all her life, and shared many memories of home, school, cooking, farming , family and friends, card mes, apple picking. Her memories and stories did not end.

    Belle loved many people, but no one more than her dear granddaughter Amy, her pride and joy, who thought of Belle and what Belle needed constantly. Belle was not afraid of anything because she had Amy.

  2. Anna, We were very sorry to hear about Aunt Ann. Her Vermont Family
