My sincere and deepest sympathy to all of Sophie's family.  I grew up with Sophie on "Syrian Hill' as neighbors...and practically a part of the Caliel family.  Sophie was one of the kindest and gentle mannered ladies that I grew up with on the "Hill'.  There is a genuine sadness within knowing that Sophie has passed.  Sophie was a woman of strong faith and is now with Her Lord and with her loved His heaven of endless Love.  Yes, Sophie's kindness and gentle manner will be missed.  Once more, my sincere and deep sympathy to Sophie's family.  Thank you, Lori, for the care taking of dear Sophie during her illness.
