Sophie & I were friends from junior high and remained friends until her death. Once a friend of Sophie's, always a friend. I will never doubt her love for me,as you see, she named her first born child after me. At a time we were all having fun in high school, Sophie was raising her baby and being wonderful mother to Becky Lynn. I was lucky enough to be able to see her before her passing. Even though we had kept up with each other over the years, I hadn't seen her in quite some time.. She was out of this area for many years, living in Alaska and then Texas. Our meeting after so many years was very special because I knew it would probably be the last time I would ever see her. She fought her battle with grace and dignity......always thinking of others first. Her children and grandchildren were her life. I love you Sophie...on this 3rd anniversary of your passing.
