My mother Sonia Carmen Alonso Kline was born in Santiago de Cuba, to Flor de Maria Tio Mangenat and Ramon Alonso Almejun natives of the Dominican Republic and Cuba, respectively.
Sonia was raised in Santiago de Cuba. After her marriage to my father Miguel J. Sabat Mercade, she moved to Habana where I was born. Sonia and I emigrated to the United States after Castro came into power. Shortly after the move to the United States her marriage to Miguel ended.
She lived and worked in several states, finally meeting and marrying her new husband Robert J. Kline in Pennsylvania, when I was nineteen. All those years Sonia worked to care and provide for me as a single mother with little help from my father.
Bob’s work took them to live in several more states before they eventually moved to Eastchester to be close to me. Bob passed away in May 2015.
My mother and I had many paths to go through but in the end we laughed a lot at our experiences, and often spoke of the old Cuban memories and our culture. Sonia enjoyed life to the fullest.
