Dear Lawrence, Mark and family, Sonia had such a youthful spirit and personality and was such a wonderfully warm and caring person. Every time I would see her at the Romanian Holocaust Commemoration, her face would light up and she'd embrace me like family. I'll always remember all the special years we spent together, especially last year at the Commemoration when I had the honour of sitting next to her, holding her hand as we commemorated Baruch's legacy. I'll miss the phone calls we had over the years and the warm friendship we formed. Sonia loved her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren so much, and I know she'll always be with you all, smiling down on you forever. Sending your family my love and condolences. May Sonia's memory be a blessing. Jaclyn Leebosh & family

Every year, Sonia and Baruch would send my siblings and me a card for our birthdays. They always knew how to make us feel special. Sonia was such a beautiful light and soul in our community and to all those she knew. She always had the time to make those around her feel special and always at the perfect time. Sonia shared her kindness with the world and wore her heart on her sleeve. I will always hold these fond memories of her in my heart. When seeing the cards she wrote me and the messages she left me, I am reminded of beauty inside and out. I am reminded of the most beautiful kind of love that expects nothing in return. I am rmeinded of a pure, genuine love that can light up many lives as her love did mine. I want to thank Sonia for the unconditional love and joy she spread. I want to thank her for being an inspiration for me and many. She is a model of true kindness and all the best in this world. I love you Sonia. My deepest condolences to the Cohen and Bergman families.
