I remember Sonia as a truly wonderful woman whose love for her family was unprecedented and her lust for life was inexhaustible! She ALWAYS made me feel as if I was one of the family and I used to love to bask in the warmth of her life force. The many weekends I spent at her house with my kids, with Zayde manning the BBQ, were some of the happiest and joyous times we had. With age comes wisdom, and Sonia had it by the bucket full! I will always cherish the heart to heart talks we would have about family,children.. the world! She ALWAYS came from love and I never heard her utter a negative word about anyone. Her laugh was infectious, and I've NEVER seen a woman of her advanced years ( was that delicate enough?) tear up the dance floor the way she did! Anyone who was lucky enough to have her in their life was truly blessed! She was a gift to the world, and the world will miss the light that illuminated all that she touched. I pray she is at peace, sitting having a cup of coffee with her beloved Paul Allen and revelling in the decades of joy she brought to so many! Rest peacefully Sunny! You've certainly earned it. I love you H.W.
