    Dear Maria and Marcia,
    Please accept our condolences on the passing of your mother, Sonja. I met your mother when I returned home to the US for a visit a few years ago. My children were working at McDonald’s at the time and your mother would come in every day for coffee. She and I became friendly as I was living abroad and she was from a country abroad. She was one of the most interesting, witty and truly kind person I have ever known. I enjoyed many conversations with her before realizing she was your mother. She spoke of you both often and was so proud of you and her grandchildren. A truly wonderful lady. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers, God bless.
    Sheryl Thomas-Nikpoor, Michael and Marcus Nikpoor

    Maria, Marcia and Families,
    I was very saddened to hear about your Mother. She was a friend to everyone she met. It wasn’t that long ago that I ran in to her and as always we spoke for a few minutes. She will be greatly missed and my thoughts are with you.

    You have been my dear friend for a long time. Now it seems like such a short time you were in my life. You are loved by me and so many others in this community and should I say all over the world. You have many friends. Together we shared much happiness, laughs and tears. I will forever remember you and your family. May God Bless you and your family. We will meet again.

    Please accept my condolences on the passing of your Mother. I worked with your Mother for many of years at Wesley Manor. She always talked about you girls. She was a very special person, we had a lot of good memories. I always saw her at the St Mary’s craft sale every year. She will be missed by a lot. I was shocked and saddened when I read of her passing. Many she rest in peace. Bless you all.

    Aunt Sophie was a spitfire! She brought such fun to family events! I would always smile when I knew she was coming to a family event because I knew she would make the event all the more exciting! She knew how to tease us kids well growing up. I loved it and loved her! Such great memories….
    Much love to you and your families!!

    Aunt & Cousin Sophie would visit us during the Ukrainian Holidays here in Chicago, Illinois. Sophie always talked so proudly of her daughters and grandchildren. She would pull out pictures and smile and tell us a story behind the photo. We would listen to her reminisce about growing up with her cousins Mike, Donch, Nadia, and her Aunt Anna Skop. Sophie loved the warmth of her aunt’s home and her great cooking. Although, Sophie is not here with us in the physical world we will honor her through our memories and photos of her as she’s done with those she loved so dearly. Our Deepest Sympathies and Spivchutya..

    Maria and Marcia,
    So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. No matter how much time you have with someone, it’s never enough. Wish I could be there to give you a big hug, but my mom will give you one for me. Praying for safe travel, comfort, peace and rest for you all.

    Maria and Marsha ,
    I watched the wonderful video of pictures of your mother I truly enjoyed it. I am so sorry for your loss.I will always remember this kind and sometimes bossy lady. I just did what I was told to do we had, many breakfasts at McDonalds she never would let me buy. I will miss her coming though my kitchen door yelling my name. Never wanting much just small things but important to her. I enjoyed the times we spent we had a lot of laughs and she told many stories to me. I will miss her dearly!! Yours truly Cathy

    Maria and Marcia,
    I’m sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I worked with your mother for several years at Wesley Manor, she was one of the most caring, and loyal co-workers I’ve known. I am truly going to miss her as a friend. God bless you both and your families.

    Sonja cared for my grandmother at Wesley Manor for several years. She called Grandma her “golden friend”, it was such a wonderful, endearing term and always made Grandma smile. She continued to visit her until the day before she passed, always bringing her a little treat for her sweet tooth or just something special that reminded her of Grandma. She was such a special friend to my grandmother and our family just loved her. I am so sorry to hear that she is gone. The world, and my life, are better for having had her in them. She was a hard worker and a loyal friend. God Bless her and you, her family, as you grieve her loss. Know that you are not alone in that grief.
