To the Family of Isabelle Suggs: I met your mother years ago.
She did a beautiful chalk drawing for my mother-in-law of my
son, Jeffrey Bence. This was when Jeff was 5 years old. I now
have the chalk drawing . Your mother was very talented . She was a sweet and beautiful person way-back-then. Now Isabella is in
God's Heaven drawing, painting the sunrises and sunsets for all
to enjoy. God bless. Miriam M. Bence
