In Loving Memory of

Isabella Rose Gonzalez

April 8, 2010 - June 23, 2022

Isabella's Story

My Daughter Isabella Rose.

Her name alone radiates beauty. In just 12 years, she provided us with love, laughs, memories, strength, and knowledge that will carry for generations to come.

Bella was the embodiment of innocence and grace.

From the moment she took her first steps, it was evident that she was special. She danced through life, not just with her feet, but with her whole heart.

The world was her stage, and every moment was a performance of love and passion.

Unfortunately, on June, 23 of 2022 the curtains closed on what was supposed to be her everlasting solo.

Bella had passed away while dancing in the home with family.

Shortly after; we learned Bella was living with ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy) , a disorder of the muscular wall of the heart. This condition increases the risk of an abnormal heartbeat (arrhythmia) and sudden death which worsens during exercise.

Thus began the encore to last a lifetime.

We started genetic testing within our family. After Many EKG’s, Echocardiograms; stress tests we learned her older brother Xavier also had a heart condition called QT prolong. A heart rhythm disorder that can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats also worsened with exercise. Without Bella, this would have gone unnoticed until it was potentially too late. Xavier is now on beta blockers and followed by a team of doctors to help maintain his heart condition. Bella saved her brother’s life!

This is just the beginning of what Bella has done since becoming an angel.

At the tender age of 3, Bella began her dance journey. Performing in groups and even having the stage all to herself. Before her passing she was a part of the Motion-N-Dance family and quickly shined her light through the studio.

Today, we keep that light shining with the Bella’s Butterflies Memorial scholarship fund! Raising money in Bella’s name to help provide tuition for children who like her, have a passion for dance.

Last year Bella’s middle school MBA started an annual winter drive “Bella’s Bundles” accepting donations of warm winter gear such as hats, gloves, and scarves to bundle together and give to the less fortunate. The items collected were donated to the woman against abuse shelter. Honoring Bella by giving others a reason to smile and keep faith has truly kept our family going. Bella’s final and most generous act of giving back was being an organ donor and providing the gift of sight to an educator who because of her; can provide the world with education efficiently and worry free.

Our dancing butterfly is a HERO. A MIRACLE WORKER and an Angel in the most literal sense of the word. She will forever be loved, cherished, and HONORED for MANY lifetimes to come.
