Sonia was always the life of the party, always a tease and had a comical story to share. She was a giver at heart, a true poet and story teller that loved to read and crochet. She truly treasured the successes of her children and grandchildren.
In the trial of her own heart, she will surely balance the scale in the afterlife against the feather of truth, and will always live within our hearts.
