"I have known Sonia and been friends for many years going the whole way back to PSU. We knew each other better than anyone ever could understand. My sympathies go out to her husband, children and her mother. She will be sadly missed. I am a better person for knowing her and the world is much emptier for having lost her. I will never forget you!"
