Condolence & Memory Journal

Sonja helped me when I was going through a difficult time, even though we had not seen each other in 29 years. I felt bad because I needed help. Sonja sent me a letter to comfort me. The letter reassured me that things would get better and that God was watching over me, as I know God is watching over her now. Sonja taught me the really important things in life. She stressed her husband, her children, family and friends, and most of all, her faith in Christ. I will miss her and I reach out to help others in need in her memory. God Bless you in your loss. Angie.

My prayers are with you, Mrs. McBeath

Sonja we will never forget you and we will carry you in our hearts until we meet again. I will miss you grabbing my man boobs and my butt and the off the wall comments you would make to try and embarass me, it worked. You were our glue, our peacemaker and our mediator. You really knew how to live life and I hope it rubs off on us all. It is so very hard to let go of you and it still seems like a bad dream. We love you so very much, RIP angel you are home. We will always love you, your "Big Texan" William.

I remember you always being there for me when I needed a friend or just someone to talk to. The time when I lost Tracy and you were there to hold me up . The times when we used to get together at moms and wrap christmas presents and get a little tipsy. All the special moments that we all shared as a family. You are my rock and hero. I miss you so much, I keep wating for you to walk thru the door at any minute with your beautiful smile. I will hold you in my heart and know that you are with me everyday with you gentle arms wrapped around me. God has taken a perfect Angel home. I love you Sissy. Rest in peace.

I met Sonja through her sister, Anna. We shared a love for horses and hit it off right away. I really enjoyed the time she came out to ride with me at my barn. It was nice to share something with someone that appreciates your passion.
