Aunt Sonia you were the epitome of class & grace. I will always remember the love and kindness you always showed and oh the laughs. So many great parties with all the cousins & the grab bag game at Christmas. So much fun picking gifts & then stealing them from each other. Uncle Leo, Eddie & Stan still make me laugh just thinking about the family bingo games. Boy, they use were a hoot. It was so fun last year when we celebrated you're 101st & Teddy's one month B-day's. We will cherish the pictures of you holding our 1st sweet grand baby. You were the best Great Aunt ever. He loved going to visit you this summer and taking a stroll together You will be greatly missed but we are happy in knowing you are all together again now smiling down on us. XOXO

Sonia was the happiest, most loving lady anyone could hope to meet. We enjoyed many a Christmas Day with her, passing, trading, and opening grab bag presents. Sonia always managed to make my daughter, who was very young, feel special and at home in tase large family gatherings, even though Jennifer did not know most of the people there.

You were, indeed, lucky to have her for all of these years, and I am glad she did not suffer a long illness. She was a tiny bundle of energy, inside and out, and of love. I know I am privileged, and a better person for having known her, and I am grateful to you for sharing her.

She will be missed. She was an amazing mother and friend to many. She always had a smile on her face and when she spoke there was so much wisdom in her words. We were blessed to have known her for so many years. Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. Carolyn and Sam Vitale

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry. I just saw this posting. BARBARA, YOU WERE so fortunate to have your MOM SO LONG. SHE ALWAYS SMILED, VIOLETTA, SYLVIA, how lucky you girls were. My grandma died then I was in Grade School. I never knew my Dads parents. I only knew my Grandpa on my mom's side. I loved seeing her at your many birthday and Christmas parties. She was a loving and caring woman. MAY SHE BE IN THE ANGELS WINGS. George and her are singing songs together I'm sure. God Bless Sonia.
