Essie was a friend of Isolde’s for many years when they worked together at Rose Tree Media School District. She sends her condolences to her children and wants you to know that Essie will miss her old friend. Apparently Isolde and Essie exchanged birthday cards for many many years.

I met Izzy many years ago at the McDonalds on Lynhaven Parkway when I stopped in to get a cup of coffee. We started talking from across our tables and then I moved to sit with her, and that was how our friendship began. Many mornings of coffee, wonderful conversations about our families and friends, many, many cards over the years! Izzy loved her children and grandchildren so much. Our love of family is what brought us together and kept us together having coffee. Her love of sports gave me something to talk about to my wonderful husband. She loved watching her games so much!

I will always remember Izzy as a very important person that came into my life and touched me with her kindness and knowledge. And don’t forget her delicious recipes that she loved to share with everyone!! Yum!

I never got to meet Andy and his wife and children or Joey and his wife and children or even Juliette, but from Issy I felt I knew them from the first moment she talked about them. I did get to meet Julie, whom Izzy lived with. Julie inherited so much of Izzy in her ways and her spirit!

I will miss you Izzy, but I know you are already having coffee with The Lord and already getting your cards ready to mail out to whomever is next on your list!

Love,
