    Marsha,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Jeanne was a long tome friend and I will miss our phone conversations. She was a dear sweet gal and we shared many laughs and good times at happy hour. My heart goes out to your family at this sad time. She was a very special friend and I will miss her very much. My heartfelt sympathy to all of you.

    Dear Marsha,

    I am sending condolences for the loss of your mother. I hope your parents enjoyed Arizona and their final years there.

    I think of you often and hope you are well. Please contact me if you are ever in Hopewell.

    Again, I’m so sorry for your loss.

    My sincere condolences to all her loved ones. She was my “guardian angel” when I moved from Baltimore to Cleveland and did not know a soul. She welcomed me as if I were family. She was a unique and special person. I will never forget her.

  4. Velda & Otto Frittmann says:

    Sofie and I met at the gym, during our physical therapy rehab (many years ago), following hip/knee surgeries. While we were in the Jacuzzi, I recognized her accent as being very similar to that of my mother-in-law’s, so I asked her what part of Yugoslavia or Germany she was from. We started talking, and became very good friends after that. Since we lived very close to each other, I would pick her up and we would do our exercises at the gym, and then go out to lunch or dinner. Whenever she made a special dish, like Mousaka or Palachinka, she would always make extra for my husband and I. In turn, I would share certain meals or desserts with Sofie and Mike. We also enjoyed phone chats & visits at each other’s homes.

    She, and our friendship, will be missed. May the Lord comfort Mike, her children, grandchildren, family members, and friends.

    Aunt Sofia was a people person and had a zest for life. She was proud of her family and her grandchildren. On her last extended visit in Canada, I found out Aunt Sofia enjoyed crochet. Uncle Mileta and late Uncle Milutin also came towards the end of her stay, so that memory remains of their time here.

    Aunt Sofia will be missed by many of her kin and her friends.
