This was somethings we were both good at and that is being late. I just want to say how much love I have for you Sonja. You were one of my Mentors throu and from GOD. I learned more about God the Bible and the ways to go when up or down. Having the courage of Lion and a â¤ï¸ of a Angle you thought me a great deal more than people would have thought. I will forever miss yours call in the middle of the night ðŸŒ™ and the Love that came with your talks. LOVE â¤ï¸ YOU FOREVER.
Both Hope & I are saddened by Sonjaâ€™s passing. We pray that God will grant her family peace in the days to come. I clearly remember her contagious laughter and great smile from our teenage years. She will surely be missed by us all.
