    I have so many good memories of working with Sondra here in Maryland at the Gift Shop-her enthusiasm with customers was unbeatable! Sondra loved her family and we especially enjoyed watching her make special packages for her grandchildren. May pleasant memories of love sustain her family during this difficult time.

    Sondra was such a sweet friend. My condolences to all the family. I met Sondra at the Houston County Historical Commission. We still miss her.

  3. Rebecca Derbonne says:

    Sondra was a lovely, lively woman. We met in 2004 in MS when our husbands attended a 40 year reunion of the Kappa Sigma Brothers. We stayed in touch and a couple years later several of “the brothers” and wives ended up in close enough proximity to each other to get together often for dinners and just enjoying the fellowship. I am saddened to hear of her passing, but comforted in the knowledge that she is reunited with Richard in the arms of our Lord. Prayers for comfort for you and the entire family.

    Saddened to hear of Sondra’s passing. We were distant cousins via the John Harris/ Fox family. I met her and Richard during a short visit to Greeley, NE a few years back. Very nice lady. I cherish the memory of that trip.

  5. Jamie Swank says:

    So very sorry to hear about Sondra’s passing. I was a part of her Gift House family. We made many wonderful memories and lifelong friendships there. May she now Rest In Peace.

    I was so saddened to hear about Sondra. We have such wonderful memories of her and Richard living in Plantation Oaks and our trip to New Orleans. Sondra had a beautiful voice and a wonderful smile. I will miss messaging her on Facebook to keep in touch. Sue and Bob Persch

  7. Alice Marie Jones says:

    It is so sad to hear about Sondra. She was so excited about moving to Mesa. We worked together at the Houston County Historical Commission in Crockett.

  8. Darrell Warren says:

    I am so sorry to hear of Sondra’s passing. We are distant cousins on her Proffitt side of the family. She helped me so much with our family history, a pastime which I knew she loved. Heartfelt condolences to the family.
