My family and I send our sincerest condolences to the family. Over the past 25 years, we have had the occasion to be with Sophie at a mutual friends for the holidays and general get togethers. She always had a smile on her face and was so happy to be with everyone. Sophie always shared kind words with my children as she saw them grow up. May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
