From: Jim Pecora
Relation: Sonia was a friend of my mother

My thoughts are with you today George and family. I was just a youngster but I still remember many a friday or saturday night when you {George] and Sonia would come up to visit my parents. The men would always end up in the rec room shooting pool. The ladies stayed upstairs to socialize. What I remember most about Sonia is her smile and sense of humor. She had a great laugh that filled a room. Hold on to your memories and Sonia will always be near you. Blessings to you all. Jim & Eleonora Pecora
