I met Ms Sonya because she was my dads neighbor. It was more like family still though. When my mom would come we would all just sit outside and laugh and talk. She was always so pleasant and what she had you had. I use to have to go use her phone because my dad would say “ Lee Lee don’t be calling them out of town numbers from my phone” so Ms Sonya would always look out for me . Her and my mother were always laughing about their men on the porch music playing love flowing we’re really going to continue to miss her. Once everyone got split up when they tore down Harriet Tubman it was a quiet nobody really liked . Our little family had been split up but family like her you never forget. The years that Ms Sonya lived a couple doors down were definitely some of the best

I had the pleasure of meeting and shared countless times together with Sonya. I never got the chance to tell her thank you for being there for my son Horatio, who is Honesty sperm donor. I will forever hold on to the memories of the good times we shared at Honesty birthday parties. Sonya always had a beautiful smile each and every time I saw her. Gone, Never Forgotten

Ms. Sonya! She would give you the shirt off her back if she was cool with ya. I remember her always making me laugh and keeping it real with me. Ms. Sonya may have went through some struggles and obstacles in her life, but she always came out fighting determined to win. So when I think of her, I think of her courage and strength. I think of a warrior. LLS... MAY YOU SHINE BRIGHT AMONGST THE STARS!

My memory of Sonya is her sweet beautiful smile, dimples and her loving way she greeted me when I saw her in Church. We always hugged and got a long like we knew each other for years. She made you laugh and feel comfortable. She is very missed especially by her family, which is my Church family whom I love very much! God bless you all❤

Sonya made me laugh she showed me so much love growing up. I'll never forget when we would say "hey cousin" and "love you cousin" whenever we saw each other. She's gone but will never ever be forgotten. Meka, Mario, Freda, and Vern stay strong you're in my prayers constantly. I love you all❤

My condolences to the family for the loss of a loved one. It’s never easy to lay any loved one to rest. I pray that from this day forth that the family will have peace and that God will wipe every tear from every eye. God knows what’s best and he never makes a mistake. Meka I love you and you’re stronger than you know. You did all you could do for your mom and you gave her her flowers while she was living, and that’s what matters most. Meka you always have my prayers and I’m a phone call away. Rest in heaven Ms.Sonya!

I recall when I was about 7 or 8 n Sonya would see me playing or running to the corner market. Just a few street outside of the Harriet Tubman low income housing projects, or everyone knew them as Bom Heights . Anything she would call me Mikey boy especially when she would references something her mother has said ( Mrs Henrietta Cash ) . It would go somethings like “ Mikey Boy you better be looking both way when you street them streets boy my momma n sissy would have a heart attack if you were to get hurt out here n these street , come on over here let me walk let me walk you back to Heaton St . Beside it’s getting dark your mother n them let you come over here by yourself , Mikey boy you something else “ then the whole walk home she would talk about how smart I was or how I better leave her daughter alone . Don’t act like she didn’t know I been courting on her .

I sadly did not get to meet Sonya in person but had talked to her on the phone through Meka.Meka told me soo much about her that I feel I knew her.I feel I knew her strength in all the things she did.She was a strong beautiful black woman who was blessed with such caring children. I am so grateful that Meka was able to be there for her mama like she was.I feel like Meka was her rock when things got tough,that she was her comfort.I wish I could have met her in person. I see her photos and she radiates beauty and strength and I see the same that was passed down to Meka when I look at her.I thank God that he graced this Earth with Sonya's presence.You are truly truly missed.Long Love Sonya forever in our hearts.

Ms. Sonya was a strong and loving , and caring woman. With all she was going through with her health, her spirit was always happy and her faith in the Lord was her comfort. Sonya will be missed but she will still live on in her family and friends hearts.

On December 8, 2020 my mama wasn’t feeling well and was rushed to the hospital. When the doctors told me she had Covid and Pneumonia, my heart dropped. My mama was already fighting; stage 4; Breast Cancer for the second time. I talked to my mama the next day and she sounded fine and was in good spirits so that made me feel better . December 10, 2020 my mama was not answering the phone so I just figured she was sleeping. On December 11, 2020 I told the hospital I wanted to hear my mama voice so they let me video chat her . My mama was so disoriented and I thought it was the medicine . I talk to my mama for about 15 mins we told each other we loved each other and I let her go. Later on that night /morning my mom threw up and it start being hard for her to breath so they had to put her on the ventilator. The doctors automatically start telling me my mom was dying and I needed to call hospice in. I told them to do everything they can for her and that I couldn’t just give up on my mom that easy . Every day or every other day they would call me and give me an update . Every time I seen the number calling my heart would just drop cause I just never knew what they was gone tell me . The weekend of January 10, 2021 the nurses and doctors called me and told me that my mama blood pressure was severely dropping and that at that point they felt like they was torching her . I knew than I was gone need to make a decision. So later on that night I started looking up different prayers basically saying I had to let her go . I found one that said mama. I said that prayer around 11 pm January 10 and 2:05 a.m Monday January 11, 2021 they called me and told me my mama had passed away. I felt like God and my mama was just waiting on me to accept that she was not gone get better. God knew it was gone be hard for me to tell the doctors to take her off the ventilator and call hospice in so he went ahead and called her home. I miss my mama so so much but I know she is not hurting anymore. I’m going to continue to make my mama proud and raise my 2 beautiful children . Long Live My Mama Sonya

I did not know Sonya personally however I do know her amazing and strong daughter meka. If meka is anything like her mother I know Sonya is a strong fighter that does not crack under pressure but rather feels motivated to withstand the hardship and trials at hand. Sonyas health journey was shared with me by meka and it inspired me to remain strong with my own health issues. I know Sonya fought with everything she had and gave it her all and for that I know her daughter meka can find a sense of solace with sonya’s passing. Sonya is resting peaceful with Jesus as the Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ and we can have reassurance and serenity knowing such a truth as that. Sonyas fight to beat covid and her own personal health conditions has sparked a fire within so many people to continue fighting and to never give up no matter the outcome. Sonya’s name will never be forgotten ♥️
