I think of Belinda so often, remembering all the times we spent together, and all we shared. She was a treasure, a true blessing in my life, and I miss her more than words can say; always will!

I think of her so often; so many things remind me of her, the laughter, the secrets, the meals, the classes we took together, the cases we shared and worked on together and in the early years, Belinda sharing the struggles and victories of her beloved daughters; boy, was she proud!. But most of all, I remember Belinda taking me to Deception Pass to throw flowers over the bridge at the most difficult time of my life; only she knew why and understood. We shared our lives and our hearts. She will never be forgotten and forever loved.

Each day we cross paths with tens or hundreds of people and on that rare occasion we meet someone who touches us deeply. Belinda was one of those who meant to touch others and encourage them to change for the better. It's hard to reconcile why a special and important person should be taken from us in such a tragic way. If we choose to remember that painful event, it will diminish all of her work done here with us. Let's remember her with love and admire her successes as an example to us all.

My heart was broken a week or so ago when I found out about the deaths of Belinda and her mom Bea. It had been years since I had seen them last, but I remember the years ago when I was around them. What a lovely family they were. This was such a tragic event, and it took away the life of these two fine ladies. They will be greatly missed by those who knew them and lived close by them. Heaven gained two angels when Belinda and Bea passed thru the heavenly gates. It is the friends and family's loss that they are no longer here on this earth. RIP sweet ladies. Loved you both.

We had so much fun growing up neighbors in Darrington. Belinda's laugh always made you laugh too. She was a beautiful caring person and I'm happy and blessed to have had you as my neighbor and friend. Loved you much

Belinda was much more than a co-worker, she was my dear and trusted friend. Over the years, by watching her love for her two precious daughters, and then her grand children, I learned what a mother, and grandmother should be. Belinda walked with me through some very dark times, I loved her dearly and will always remember what a unique and special person she was. My love and deepest sympathy to you all. Lynn

I had not seen
Belinda since high school but knew what she was doing with her life and knew that she loved what she was doing and that she was loved by many. My heart goes out to her family and I pray for them to know that she is in a good place. She earned her crown to heaven here on earth.

Her laugh, all I can say was that she made me laugh and it was fantastic! I had the pleasure of being her hairdresser for years and we became close and could laugh at the bond of a fellow hairdresser. Although she was a probation officer for 29 years she was a hairdresser before that. Something that is never out of your system. I would look so forward to seeing her and bea. There are no words to express how much the world has lost without her and bea.

I have known Belinda for many years; both of us working with at risk populations-She was full of passion and hope for each person that she came to know. A bright light in a world sometimes filled with anger she encouraged each person to find a path to a better life

We may never have met but as in-law to my Cousin (Sh), you were Family (Moreso you shared first name with another lovely Cousin)! I may not have felt your kindness, compassion and love directly but the thoughts and words of your former Boss, close friends and loved ones as expressed here is a testimony of the rich, blessed and examplary life you led. You came alone but rich enough to go in company of a loved one and others. God works in mysterious ways with unquestionable authority! We are deeply saddened but we surrender to he who gaveth you to us and now taketh; blessed be his name forever!

May your gentle soul rest in peace Belinda!!

From the time you were a little girl, you were special, you never knew how beautiful you were, that even made you more beautiful. Your heart, like your Mama's, was pure gold. Those whose lives you touched were forever changed for the good. All of our lives were blessed from knowing you and calling you friend. Rest In Peace, your job here was well done. You left a legacy of love behind with memories that will comfort your family forever.
