I'm a PCA at allied where Sophia lived. I work the night shift and She was definitely a night owl. We talked alot about her family and how much she loved them. She loved music. I had a playlist on my phone id let her listen to until she fell asleep . My sophia playlist!!. If anyone knew Sophia you knew her love of candy. I dont know if she knew she would be leaving us soon but towards the end she just kept telling us all she loved us. Everyday and everyone. As I said my final goodbyes to her at her funeral today. I told her WE ALL LOVE HER AND SHE WAS NOT ALONE. Sophia was not just a resident she was family .Wed like to thank her family for allowing us to care for her. Sophia. Was very religious so I know shes in heaven looking down on us wondering where her candy was. Lol. Now she has an unlimited supply .We love you Sophia Sleep in Heavenly peace.

I was a worker at the personal care home Sophia has lived in for the last many years. She was the most amazing person I have ever met. She was not just someone I took care of she was my family and I loved her very much. In all my life I will not meet a person that can make me smile so much. I will miss her greatly. God definitely gained an amazing angel with a great sense of humor. I’m sure on my days when I’m not feeling so well, I find myself driving to the cemetery just to sit by her and visit. She was definitely a huge part of my life for the last 7 years.
