Sondra's family & my family (Bryant) moved to Green Mountain Circle in Columbia at the same time 51 years ago! We shared a friendship for many years which included many happy times but also some very sad times. My son became friends with Trae as he and David were in the first Kindergarten Class at Bryant Woods Elementary.
I remember Sondra as a wonderful, caring, supportive friend & neighbor and am saddened by her death. It is my regret that I did not keep in touch with her. We have lost a good soul.
To the family, I am so sorry for your loss.

Sondra's life had a profound impact on my own. Namely, she raised the man that would become my husband. I am grateful for her and loved how her family accepted me with open arms. Loving families are treasures and I have been very blessed.
