My favorite memory of Sonja, was in I believe 2012, a family reunion in Tulsa Oklahoma.
My cousins and I were in the lobby of a lodge we had rented, and in walks Sonja And Scott. Them being white and us being Black, i was nominated to inform them we were having a Family reunion that weekend in the lodge and if it got loud just let us know and we’d tone it down.
Sonja looked at me and held up a t-shirt that said Barheche- Escoe Family Reunion.
I immediately said your my white cousin. Its a pleasure to meet you. ( we are all Black/indian/white)
I introduced her and Scott to Kathy, Julia & Tara, asked them if they drink, Scott said yes, I told Scott the alcohol was in my room, he wanted rum and coke, and for the rest of the weekend we got to know our cousin. We learned parts of our family history that Sonja had researched over the years. She shared with us, we shared with her. It was amazing.
What a beautiful spirit Sonja had as well as Scott. I cant talk about her without talking about him. They were ONE.
Sonja, Scott and Caitlin made it to the San Diego Family Reunion.
Sonja wasnt able to make the Houston reunion, she was to ill.
My first time meeting Sonja, my blood cousin will always be with me, she will be missed and she is LOVED.
