My fiance and I always talk about our memories of Sofia. It was fun spending time with her at Kutztown. She was the first of my friends to meet my future husband. I had dragged her to the bus stop with me so I that I wouldn't be meeting him for the first time on my own. She made the Honors Program at Kutztown more fun. I missed her when she left Kutztown, and now I find out that I missed her funeral. It's nice to know that so many other people cared about Sofia. I don't know what else to say, except, thank you Mr. Kohler for putting this Guest Book up. I'm really going to miss her.
To the family of Sofia ... I was fortunate to have had her as a student. She was a bright and shining light. My heart cries for the pain for which you endure. Sofia will be remembered and missed by many.
May peace fill your hearts and fond memories fill your mind.
I will always remember you. Remember drinking tea and eating halvah? Peace.
Sofi, you always will be with me in my heart, in my soul, in my spirit, Nobody, and nothing, even death can separate us. You give me strength to go on and I feel your presence all the time and warmth of your soul around me.
Love is eternal,and you are here with us.
My Love Sofia, I love you and remember so many things about you..a beautiful wonderful little girl. ..with teary eyes i am so sad. i think of you and look at all your pictures every day. in my heart and mind you are always with me. x0x0x Aunt Nadya
Sofia...this is so not the way it should have been for someone like you..when i met you in 2005 i saw such an enlightened dear person and even wrote a song about you (i just could not help it..the music just came)...i think you were inspirational and kind and good to many others as well..in just your 22 years. It was a very nice time to meet you and have tea.(and oh how you loved various teas..yum..) i will remember and think of you always.. i am so sad..x0...bye Sofia.
Sofia, what can be said? Your leaving has left such a great emptiness in my heart. You were such a wonderful friend: kind, compassionate, patient, understanding. Your humanity was only matched by your brilliance and your beauty. Knowing you had changed me for the better, as I know it did for anyone who had the fortune to encounter you. I wish I had known you would leave so soon, I would have done more for you, stayed closer to you, kept in touch more often. The arrogance of youth had me assume you would always be here. Now you are gone, and I know I shall miss you for the rest of my life. I will try in earnest to remember the wonderful times we had, instead of being consumed by my sorrow for your passing. You were the truest friend I ever had, for in you I felt I had found a kindred spirit, a twin-soul. I promise that I will never take my life for granted, now that you are not here. Your brilliance and humility taught me so much, your ambition exemplified what one should strive for, and I promise I will not ever forget that. I will try my best to honor your spirit. You will always be loved, Sofia. Thank you for gracing my life with your presence, my dear, dear friend. I hope I shall see you again someday.
Sofia, I just heard of your passing today and am in shock and disbelief. You were such an amazing person and I am grateful to have known you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this trying time. May you rest in peace.
You were a good, honest, hard worker and I appreciated you as one of my first employees, although we did not stay in touch, I was saddened by this news that you are gone so soon. Life is not fair.
My condolences to your family.
Dearest Alena - i did not know Sofia, but if she was anything like you, she must have been an angel. My heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you as i struggle to understand how it must feel to lose a precious child. May God give you strength to get through all of the struggles that go with losing a loved one.I love you, Alena. Kathy Dittemore
Sofia, there is no word to transcribe my emotion. You have in me a beautiful, immortal friendship. I adore you my dear.

Where do I begin.... You and Reza are in our thoughts and prayers. Sofia was a strong, courageous, intelligent, and bright and I could go on..... she was a fighter and you are a wonderful mom.

Lots and lots of hugs...

Sofia we remember you as a kind, talented and gifted young woman. May you be at peace in God's loving embrace.
It is so tragic and sad when a beautiful, intelligent, young and a talented person is taken away too soon. You were a brave woman who fought the cancer with so much strength. i will always remember your soft voice and pleasant and sweet personality.i wish you peace.Alena and Reza my thoughts and prayers are with you. Amar
You were truly a special person and I'll miss our long talks about everything.
Sofia, I just don't know how to say goodbye to you. You were an amazing friend, and I know that the world is a lesser place without you in it. The only consolation I'm finding is in knowing that you aren't in pain anymore and in hoping that your brightness is shining wherever you are now. I wish we could have had more time together, but I look forward to seeing you again someday. Thank you for being my friend.
Sofia was brilliant, beautiful, and an incredible friend. We were all lucky to have her in our lives.
I will miss you, old friend.
I wish I kept in touch more often. I took you for granted, and it never occurred to me that you would leave this young. I thought we would be friends for years, well past when both of us met our own successes and conquered our fears. You were one of my best friends, and you were a part of me. You knew me better than anyone, because we shared the same ideals, mentality and eagerness of youth. We fed each others' ambitions. You inspired me to excel, to cast away doubt. Of everyone I ever met, I believed that you had the capacity to change the world. I miss you more than words can describe. You are permanent to me, forever real. I regret that I never could tell you that I cared about you this much. I wish you were here, Sofie.
I'll miss you more than either of us knew.
Sophia was an amazing friend! I will miss her very much! I will miss our wonderful talks about school and life! I will hold these memories close to my heart! The only comfort I have is knowing my friend is not in pain anymore!
Sofia was a lovely person. She had so much to offer. This is very sad that she was taken so young.I am sure she is with GOD and he is taking good care of her.
Cale and to Sophia's family, Michael and I extend our deepest sympathies to you. We only met Sophia one time and found her to be such a lovely person. Apparently GOD had other plans for her. Please know that she is in the best hands of all.
sophie we will miss your kind and gentle soul. you were taken away much too soon.
Dear Sofia ,you will forever be in our hearts you will be so missed . Our deepest sympathy to the family. Charles & Diane Muffley, Sam & Marissa
