I met Sondra in 1964 when I moved to Boston.
She was the first person to knock on my door. I don't know what I would have done the few years we lived there if she had not done that. Her kindness, fellowship, and compassion was given freely to me. I was like a fish out of water (2 kids under 2 yrs)and she was there for me. She was a godsend to me. Prayers and blessings to the girls and their families.

I was fortunate enough to be a co-worker of Sondra's at Reid Health Laboratory. She was dedicated to her job with a very conscientious work ethic. It was an honor to know Sondra and I was lucky to call her my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to her daughters and family!

I remember meeting her at the family house in Boston. I I attended a peer party at her house in the early seventies. She was kind and had a smile that extended from ear to ear.. Many years later we became friends onFacebook. It’s funny how after all these years I remembered that one day. God Bless.
