Mr. Thallas says the thought of a park, her memorial, and stories about his daughter all capture the same piece of Isabella’s character. A part of her he wants everyone to celebrate.
“We thought it would just be absolutely amazing to set up a park here,” Josh Thallas, her father said. “Where people could come and have some comradery and bring their animals, too and share some friendship with one another.”
The memorial has become a place of comfort for the family as they grieve but also a way to celebrate Isabella’s life and see the impact she had on the community. It could be a model for the type of park they want to create in her memory. A vigil on Thursday night was an incredible show of support for the family.
“As a dad, it’s beyond powerful,” Mr. Thallas told CBS4 on Friday. “You stand up and look around there are hundreds upon hundreds of young human beings out there, it’s amazing.”
