Welcome

This site was created with love in memory of our daughter, Sophia Zartarian Nagle (December 4, 2003 – December 11, 2004), who left our earth far too soon due to Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC). May Sophia’s sparkling eyes and playful spirit shine upon us always.

The true story of Sophia and her big sister, Isabelle, inspired our dear friend, Betsy Bottino Arenella, to create Isabelle’s Dream, a comforting, healing, inspiring story for bereaved siblings aged three to 10. Quality of Life Publishing published Isabelle’s Dream as a 64-page story, art and activity book with beautiful ink illustrations by artist Dana Henderson.

We hope this book’s message of hope and eternal love will bring solace not only to bereaved siblings, but also to other family members, friends and communities facing the devastating heartache of a child’s death. Betsy is donating all her Isabelle’s Dream proceeds to the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood Program, which offers SUDC families support, information, research and advocacy.
