Dear Joe, My heartfelt condolences to you and your dear family. Sofia was a lovely neighbor for many years, always with a sunny smile and a kind word. She would ask me why my front yard was all green and urge me to add color - once she gave me some bright fuschia flowers and I must admit that they looked beautiful! I will miss her warmth and kindness. May all your memories of happy times together bring you comfort at this time of loss. Fondly, Judith

With deepest sympathies to the entire family. She will always be remembered in our hearts. We will always remember her smile, she was always smiling when we went to Carla's parents who lived next door. She was like a grandmother to my children as they were growing up next door. Every time I went to my in-laws it gave me a chance to say hi and talk for few minutes on the veranda. May she rest in peace.

My family and I send our love and condolences to the family of Mrs. Coroa. We are friends of her daughter, Sofia, and have heard lovely stories about her and who she was to all of you. Though I never met her, I feel like I got to know her through Sofia. She taught Sofia how to love those around her very well, for which we are very grateful. Her loving legacy will live on through her children and grandchildren. We are praying for her soul to be at rest now and sending much care to all of you.
