Message: Hi, I wanted to say Isabelle's story touched me and she looks like she was a brave and strong little princess. I am a kid with Wolff-Parkinson White and I was looking at sites of other kids with heart problems. My prayers are with your family. Love Shanna

Message: I have been really thinking about Isabelle a lot the past few days. My husbands cousin and his wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Caylee late last week. Only to find out the she has been diagnosed as having Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. I have sent Isabelle's site out for my other side of my family to read about. The resources and information that you guys have given is absolutly wonderful. I just wanted to let guys know that.

Message: Sorry! Wrong verification code! I am the son of the chaplain who worked with Isabelle at Children's. You may know her as Connie Madden. My mom thought very highly of Isabelle and told me about how they used to play princess together. Through her website and what my mom has told me I have grown to love her as well. I am very sorry and sad about her death. I wish the best of wishes and luck!

Message: The St. Louis Children's Hospital memoral service was tonight, sorry you guys couldn't be here.
It was a very beautiful service, with each child having a candle lit in their memory by a family member, or if one wasn't available, a member of staff lit the candle. I hope you don't mind, but I lit Isabelle's candle for her (I got up quicker than some of the other staff members).
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that even though Isabelle is gone she's still remembered very fondly around here, and still one of our all time favorite patients.

I was so sad when I heard about Isabelle. My heart goes out to both of you. Some families and kids hold a special place in my heart and Isabelle and you are one of those families.

Message: Happy Birthday Princess Isabelle!!! I miss you everyday! I know that today you had a wonderful celebration with all the other angels! Chris and Amanda- My thoughts and prayers are with you daily. Thank you so much for sharing Isabelle and Elorah with all of us as well as continuing to update this site! Isabelle has touched my life in ways I cannot begin to express in words. She taught me a lot about life. The staff of Educare enjoyed treats in Isabelle's honor today. We took time to share our memories of Isabelle and pass on her story to the teachers who did not know her. I love seeing Elorah everyday. I see Isabelle in her all the time! One memory of Isabelle that I will never forget is from this past summer. I remember how much she would light up when she knew it was time to put on her swim suit for swim lessons. She always knew when it was time for Mommy to come get her. She would sing and tell me many stories while she changed! I loved every minute of it! I had not had a chance to share that with you and wanted to pass that memory on to you both.
Love, Melissa Harmon

Message: HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET PRINCESS ISABELLE!
On days like this when the simplicity of a smile feels like moving the earth, I let Isabelle take the reigns. She guides me in her chariot to a place of peace and laughter. Through every memory, every smile, every giggle, chocolate face and princess dress she lets me know how very, very happy she was and forever will be. Though she never sang to me, as I've been told she so loves to do, I can hear her song of love each and every day. We are in the arms of an "angel". May her wings fly us to a place of comfort where our Father can heal our hurting hearts.
Chris, Amanda,and Elorah,
My whole heart goes out to you today and always! May you be blessed and comforted by the love of Jesus.
Isabelle, I LOVE YOU!
