Soni was one of my special childhood friends who all grew up together at First Mount Moriah. I loved spending the night at her house, especially the sleepovers we would all attend. Soni told us that whoever went to sleep first would get a prank played on them. I remember waking up with a 45 record lodged around my ear and shaving cream on my face. We laughed so hard many, many times together with my other best buddy Lisa Lee (Hagwood.) I am so sorry for your loss of Soni. May God wrap His loving arms around you and hold you tight.
