Condolence & Memory Journal

Sonja will be missed. I have been a volunteer at Parker Oaks since 2005. Over the years I have had many great memories doing things with Sonja. These last years I have been the "Library Lady" bringing Sonja books from Muir Library. She would tell us what she liked and our librarian would find them for her, and I would do the delivery. That almost always meant we had time for a visit, whether about the Twins or Vikings, or what had piqued her interest since I had seen her last.
Sending my deepest sympathy to you, her family. I am giving a memorial in Sonja's name to the Friends of the Muir Library.
