Rene... So sorry to read about your Mom's passing. I had never met her until both our Moms were at New Dawn; although I had heard my Mom mention her when talking about Bridge. The world is not the same without them. Prayers for your family.

When I first met Marybelle she asked me what my name was and I replied Lori she said Lola and I said sure you can call me that. So for the rest of her stay at Park Village I was Lola. She always asked the other aides where I was and we grew quite close. I would go into her room and talk to her whenever I had the chance. It was a great pleasure to know her and she will be dearly missed.

I am sending my love and condolences in the passing of the wonderful MaryBelle to Renee, Wiz, little Zoey and all of her family. It was such a joy and delight to know MaryBelle as her memory was amazing, she was so kind with a great sense of humor and was an awesome card player there at New Dawn where my sister Karen and I got to know her and her family. MaryBelle, we love you and you will be missed. May you have complete healing and rest in peace in heaven with God.
