Dear Peter, Anna, Janet, Stephen, Peter Jr. and Sheila

I only knew Sophie for a few years but I thought she was a pistol or as Emma would say, a hot ticket! We had the chance to talk at Emma's birthday parties and when Sophie would stop by with Janet. I never saw Sophie without a big smile on her face. My deepest sympathy for your loss.
Love, Mary

Sophie always had a kind word to share and anyone who touched her life was moved by her gentle and compassionate soul. May the good and loving Lord keep her in the warmth of his strong embrace.

Janet and Peter,
Beautiful, sweet, kind, and the most loving. That is what we think of when we remember your Mom.

When we think of Clara, your mom is always in that memory too. They were such good friends.

We are so blessed to have known her and loved her. So many of us are better because of her love.

Keep her legacy alive and know we are sending a virtual hug to you.

Our deepest sympathy.

Love
Therese and Paul Parillo

After reading Sofie's obituary, I really wish I had gotten to know her. She sounds like she was a lot of fun. I went to high school with her beautiful daughter, Janet. The love and dedication Janet has shown her mother over the last few years shows the character Sofie helped to build in her children. That was not an easy assignment, Janet.

Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you, Janet and your entire family. God bless.
