    Family, I am so sorry for your loss of your mother, grandmother and sister. Know you all are in my prayers. Sonya was a very nice person. Thinking back on memories with us being at Shirley’s or at church singing in the choir. Or being on Johns Ave at your mom’s. Us laughing so hard at each other, especially when Vincent would do something funny. It is good to have memories that we can keep forever. Family hold onto your memories they are your treasures.
    I pray God give you strength that you need to get through this time of Sonya’s transition.

    My sincere condolences to the Osborne and the Black family. Sonya was one of my very dear childhood & Junior High School friends. She was always so sweet and kept me laughing. She didn’t change much at all when we became adults, she was loved by many with her pleasant personality. smile, and laughter. She will certainly be missed, and never forgotten.
    R.I.P. Sonya.
