Sonia was like walking sunshine, she would brighten every room she entered, even on her worst day. She never failed to put a smile on our faces, whether you were family, friends or coworkers. Sonia was a blessing to all that came in contact with her. She would welcome you with open arms, without judgement, she’d always laugh with you and sometimes at you. If you knew Sonia then you would’ve known her baby Ali and her husband were most definitely her pride and joy. She never missed a beat. She showed up to every event always the first to offer help. She would always do for others before herself without asking for anything in return. She always had room in her heart for one more. Sonia was definitely and will always be one of a kind. She will truly be missed by everyone whose hearts she touched.
