We are so sorry to learn of the passing of Aunt Sophie. She always had a smile and was so welcoming whenever I would see her. She had a great way of saying my name "Gregory" with such spirit and making me feel so special. While the passing of a loved one is always difficult Aunt Sophie will be remembered in our hearts. God Bless you Aunt Sophia and rest in peace.
Greg and Mary Ann Adams
