I just learned of Sonia’s passing today from a nice card and note received from daughter Carolyn. What a wonderful lady and dear friend! She was part of my life when I lived in California and we remained friends through correspondence after I moved back to Arkansas in 1990. She had such a love of life and her dear family! Always had a positive outlook! She lit up a room when she came into it. I know you all will miss her greatly, but take comfort in knowing she is resting with the angels! Many blessings to your family and my heartfelt condolences for your loss!
