I had the privilege of working with Sophia at Bank of Stockton. She was a kind, fun and loyal friend. Ashlyn, she was so proud to have you as her daughter! She would brag about your accomplishments and you meant the world to her. Justin, your mom loved "her boy" and nobody better " mess" with him. She loved you both and you were her world! I'm so sorry for your great loss. Jason she loved being your wife and loved you. Praying for comfort, peace and strength to all of you during this difficult time. Sophia may be gone, but she will always hold a special place in my heart.

I met Sophie over the phone she was with AAA Stockton and I was working for Walt Disney Travel. In the process of booking her guest to her favorite place Disneyland we began a friendship that would grow with each call she made to Disney. Eventually we exchanged phone numbers and began talking about anything and everything late into the night. As a representative of AAA she attended a conference at Disneyland in 2002 and it was there we met in person for the first time. She is one of my best friends and she use to say we had a cosmic connection and that whenever she was feeling sad or stressed I would call. There were a few times we spent time together at the Happiest Place on Earth and with her it was magical. She was like my little sister I Love and miss her.
To Jason Ashlyn and Justin words cant express the sorrow I feel for all of you and Jessica and I will be at her memorial next week.
