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.

Message: Hello Chris and Amanda,
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.
Take Care, Staci

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!

Message: Dear Ellis Family,
I had the pleasure of knowing Isabelle and Elora through the KU practica. I can remember when Elora would be dropped off in Sunnyside and Isabelle would walk right in the room and just give the biggest smile. She would just talk ur ear off, give you hugs, high fives, and just light the room up with her presence. I will never forget the how amazing she was and how much I enjoyed being around her and Elora. I also remember when I got the opportunity to babysit the girls at your home and what fun I had with them. The day I watched them we went on a walk with her baby, danced around, laughed and smiled for hours. She will truly be missed and if you need anything at all I am here for you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Message: I never had the pleasure of working with Isabelle but I felt compelled to sign her guestbook. I am a nurse at SLCH and got pulled to the CICU. I came across her card, saw her beautifull face, and read her story. What a fighter! Im so sorry for your loss. You all will always have an angel looking over you. God Bless
