Sonja was my favorite aunt and will be greatly missed. When I took care of her parents we would have lots of chats. Sonja loved to talk about crafts and taught me many crafts. I am a big crafter today. Prayers to the family and so very sorry for your loss. Sonja will be missed.

I work Security, at Gun Lake Casino. Norman and Sonja are one of my favorite couples. I would always look for them, everyday. Sonja would always ask about my granddaughter, who was born this past January. And she would talk about her family, some. And things she was going to do later, after she would get home.Then we would talk about our show, Days of our Lives. Sonja, was a very sweet woman. She had a beautiful smile and a very warm heart. I am so sorry for her loss. She will be very deeply missed. With thoughts and prayers, Sheila.
