Peacefully in the early morning of October 19, 2022, at Park Manor, Sonia passed away at the age of 99 years.
In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
Are You There Momma?
All it takes is one picture, one memory, one song
Ever since you left us everything seems wrong
The sadness can hit me and knock me on the floor
They say it gets easier but it’s hurting so much more
I still can hear your voice and I visualize your face
But all I want is to have you right back in your place
Can you hear me momma, in my dreams I call for you
And I try so hard to get to you but I don’t know what to do
Can you see me momma, are you watching over me?
Is Heaven all they say it is, are you healthy and happy?
Your family is hurting; it’s so hard since you’ve been gone
I’m crying so much now, but I once was very strong
Losing you has changed me, made me someone new
I know you want me happy so I’ll try to be that for you
Please watch over us all, from your perch up in the sky
And every time I think of you I’ll try hard not to cry
Can you hear me momma, calling out your name
I feel you all around me, but it’ll never be the same
Can you see me momma, as you look down from your cloud?
I hope and pray with all my might that I still make you proud.
