Dear Laurie, Todd, Brad, and families, My heart broke when I heard about your mom. So many of my happiest memories growing up on Sherwood Road revolve around your family. Your mom was so beautiful, inside and out. She had the best smile (though she complained about the gap between her teeth) and the best, most wicked sense of humor! Her wit was unsurpassed. I can still hear her, "Isobel necessary on a bike?" Her dream of becoming a mother was fulfilled when you came along, Laurie, and you brought her such joy. And then you boys made her joy complete. I loved spending time with all of you, and was thrilled when she trusted me to be your babysitter. Then when I was older, I loved going over and just sitting in the kitchen with Izzy, with her asking me all about my life and being so supportive when I became a mother myself. When your dad died so young, she had to sort of reinvent herself, and she did it so beautifully! She was adventurous, brave, and always, always fun loving. I loved getting the postcards she sent me from exotic places, and she really inspired me to get out and see the world. The last time I saw her, probably about four years ago, I went to see her at Seminole Shores and we had the best visit. She was still as witty as ever, still had a kitty to love, and I will always cherish that memory. I don't know if I can adequately put into words how much she meant to me. She was one of a kind, and I will never forget her. My thoughts are with you all. Love, Tass
My dear friend Izzy !! There is so much to say about her!! I don’t know where to begin? She went to Heaven last night and we all will dearly miss her! I rejoice in the fact that she is free and at peace, no pain, and in the most beautiful place ever. She was widowed so young and now she is with her wonderful husband, who she dearly missed every day. She filled her life with so many things, used her talents, shared her love, enjoyed traveling, but most of all taking care, teaching special needs people in our community. She was a great teacher at Wesley school. The students all loved her very much! She had no enemies she was a friend of all. She was a partner in crime to me, ready to jump in the car and go! We would pick up Connie and go out for a fun night full of shenanigans. She never said, no, she was always on the go.!!! She was 20 years older than me, but acted 20 years younger than me ! She filled my life with so much richness and companionship. I can’t even begin to share how much she meant to me. She made me laugh more than anyone else! She had a sense of humor that was way over the top of anybody else. I know !!!! She love to go out and eat, she loved ice cream. She just like to have fun. She was a lot braver than I was. Some of her travels had me squirming in my skin. Who would go down the Amazon river in a raft with a guide and three other people? Sleep on a thatched platform in the trees. Who would put a snake, a huge fat big snake around her neck? Izzy would!!! There are so many stories to share about her, but it would take literally a year of writing! I love you, Izzy Herbert!!!! A very beautiful woman!!! Thank you Izzy for being my dear friend !
