The city has lost a great and gifted leader, manager, supporter and builder. We should all be grateful for her vision and leadership. We appreciated Sonia's smile and kindness. She was a gentlewoman. Her city and current leadership are her legacy. We remember Sonia with warmth in our hearts and the feel of admiration: what a motivator! what a visionary! How many people she knew by their names!
