Sonya was such a beautiful person. We sat together at a table in home ec class while sewing baby blankets and such. We also were in band together. She always had a smile on her face. I'm sad that she had to leave everyone, but I know she's an angel in heaven. Family... always be looking for that red cardinal. That'll be her sign. What a treasure that GOD gave y'all when he gave y'all Sonya.♡ Cherish her memory, and keep them alive for that new grandbaby. ♡

My deepest sympathy. Please remember and reflect on "when your heart is empty, filling it with happy memories can help." We all have wonderful memories of Sonya and her beautiful smile. I pray that God will bless and comfort her family during this difficult time. Ginger Jenner-Greene
