I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Psalm 91:2
  • 55 years old
  • Born on April 24, 1955 .
  • Passed away on March 10, 2011 in Virginia, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved sister, Sophia Abraham who was born on April 24, 1955 and passed away on March 10, 2011. We will remember her forever.

Sophia had an amazing spirit and a true zest for life. She always had a positive outlook and was never afraid to take risks, making one of her mottos "The only failure in life is failure to try". We are grateful God put Sophia in our lives and would like to celebrate the wonderful life she had.

We would like to express our humble appreciation and gratitude for the many acts of kindness and expression of sympathy shown while we were going through a difficult time. Each prayer helped to ease our pain, each visit lightened our burden, and each phone call reminded us we were not alone. May God bless you all.

It has been six months since I last visited, now it has been a year since you left us, yet, it all seems so surreal. I woke up this morning thinking of you and after praying, I lit a candle for you and put it right underneath the photo you gave to me of your Mother before you left us to meet her. I have it hanging on my walls where it reminds me of you both. May you both Rest in Peace.

Six months today since you left us, but it seems just yesterday that you were here among us. This morning I woke up and lit a candle for you and I felt your presence asking me not to mourn anymore. I will then make this my last message here. Rest you in peace my dearest Sophie

lately we had a mild earthquake followed by a hurricane in New York City, and among those who called to show their concern, your voice was conspicuously silent, and we missed it sorely. Among others, it is at such times when you are most missed. Rest in peace my dearest Sophie.

I thank Liya for her thoughtfulness, and the webmasters too for giving us this site where we can pour out our hearts. It is next to visiting your grave to say hello. Thank you all for this privilege. Rest in peace my dearest Sophie.

I saw the pictures where the balloons went up and disappeared into the sky, as your colleagues planted a tree in your memory. At that moment, I liked to think, perhaps you were up there, together with the angles, looking down, to console us all. Rest in peace my dearest Sophie.

So many times, I have had to refrain myself from picking up the telephone, and to share with you about something or another, the way we always used to do, when I come to the realization, that you would not be there to pick it up on the other end. Rest in peace my dearest Sophie.

It is only as time goes bye, that your absence and the emptiness you left behind, which makes your going away seem so real. I miss you more and more each day. Rest in peace my dearest Sophie.

Sophia You were so full of life. We never thought you would leave us this soon. You were the kind that made the day a little more brigher, the night a little less darker. You were a crown jewel of family and friends. We will miss you a lot.

"Many are the plans in man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails". Proverbs 19.21. May all in Sophie's family find strength, serenity and hope in the Lord's Will.
