Sonja's Loved Ones

My heartfelt sympathy to Sonja's loved ones. Sonja spent time in her early teen years with my sister Jane and often stayed over on weekends at our house. Many nights Sonja and Jane would try to learn the popular dances of the day with vinyl 45 and 33 rpm records played on our old gramophone and then head to the teen dance at the Employees' Hall. They had such fun. I am glad I have that memory of her and Jane being happy, and maybe they will share a cloud and remember when.
Rest in peace Sonja.

Darrin keft

Sonja was a very cool aunt, a real firecracker. She had been a big part of my early years growing up in Oshawa. She was fun and felt more like a friend then an adult authority figure. You will always be in my heart. Rest now in peace. Darrin I am sorry for your lost. Love always Deanna
