Susie, I am so shocked to hear of Sonya's passing. I know you will be lost without her. I have always been proud to call y'all my sisters even though we were only step sisters. Sonya was a funny and loving friend. Holiday get togethers were fun times and I missed you guys when you weren't there.
Sonya will be truly misses but I know she has gone to her heavenly home to wait for the rest of us. When we do get there , I know that it will be a HOOT!
Love you Sonya and will miss you!
Susie I love you and miss you too.

As Sonya's sister I have more memories then I could even began to list. She was not only my sister, but also my best friend. We were very close in fact, we lived together for most of our lives. She comforted me when I was hurting, she was my confidant when I was worried, and she was my love when I felt unloved. She loved everyone she met and left a lasting impression on them all. She will be greatly missed here on Earth, but one day I will meet her again in heaven. I love you to the Moon and back Sonya and I love you

Being Sonyas sister-in-law (sister) for 30 plus years, I have many, many memories that I will now forever cherish ๐Ÿ’•
But one memory that I have is a night that Me, Sonya and Susie hung out and had more fun than the law should allow ๐Ÿ˜†
Susie, I know you remember the night Iโ€™m talking about... it involved dogs barking and we laughed until we could barely breathe. Iโ€™m leaving some details out ๐Ÿ˜† and we will keep it our secret ๐Ÿ’•
Another VERY funny memory was our one and only trip to Biloxi Mississippi one night.. and we completely forgot that it was New Yearโ€™s Eve ... we were ready to leave and there was about a 3 hour wait to retrieve our car from Valet Parking but with some quick thinking by Me, Sonya Cindy and Susie we were able to get our car returned to us within about 15 minutes. We laughed all the way home on how smart we were and how we outwitted the Valet Parking into getting our car back to us within a few minutes.
Sonya was a very cool, calm person and to use the word โ€œfunnyโ€ is a complete understatement. She was comical and funny without trying to be. She could say things in a way that would be absolutely funny and would have you laughing so hard. With all this being said, she had a heart of gold and loved everyone... but most of all she loved Adam with her whole heart and soul ๐Ÿ’•
Adam, Iโ€™m sure that you know how much she loved you... all you did for her, was so much appreciated by her.. may you take comfort in knowing just how much your mom loved you, she adored you and took great pride in calling you her son.
I know you will miss her.. itโ€™s true have so many wonderful memories and stories to hold dear to your heart.
Adam, You were the son to her that most Mothers could only pray to have of their own.
Sonya, we love you always.
