Belle is a true inspiration to me. Her love of life and her spirit amazed me daily. We should all be bold enough to live like Belle did. Despite her illness and tough times she lived her life to the fullest and enjoyed each day like it was her last. Many in that situation would have given up or looked for pity. Not Belle. People should be more like that. The world would be a much better and happier place. I have a fur baby named Bella and I would be heartbroken if something happened to her. The strength that you showed Irene was amazing! I know Belle is watching over you until you meet again!
