Dear Eva and family,
I have fond memories of Sonna teaching my daughter Jenny, and fellowship at church. We had many losses through the years, Sonna always would leave a token of her thoughtfulness at our home to share Gods love, no matter how much time passed by. She loved family and all who knew her-She has left a sweet print on all our hearts

Eva and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have such fond memories of spending nights at your house, with my sweet friend, Sonna, when we were young. I remember that you, Eva, would allow Sonna and I to stay up as late as we wanted to, sometimes all night long. I've been blessed to have kept in touch with Sonna all these years. She will be missed, but we are comforted to know that she is now in the presence of God. Much love to each of you, Eva, Alan, Anna Kate, and Niley.
