    I always remember when I was in the Air Force she would send me cookies. She was well thought of by all her nieces and nephews, she will be greatly missed.

    I am honored and blessed that I had the chance to get to know Sophie so well during Christmas eve dinnners at my house and chatting in the car during rides I gave her to and from Mass and choir rehearsals. Sophie always made me laugh and we had many discussions that I will cherish forever.

    Rest in peace, Sophie. Your new journey and eternal reward is before you. I will miss you terribly! Judy Kaiser
