  2. My sincere condolences to the family of Sonya. She was a true Godsend to us while mom was a resident at Kingsbrook. Any time mom needed medical attention, I knew I could call on Sonya, and mom would receive the thorough, loving and gentle care she needed. Sonya also loved to stop by mom’s room and visit with her. I feel certain mom was there to greet Sonya when she entered heaven. Your family will be remembered in my prayers. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

  3. I’ll cherish the memories of Sonya from my childhood. I’m sure I was a pesky little cousin, but she was always so sweet to me and included me. I will always remember her as an intelligent, kind and beautiful person.
