To The Womack Family;
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Sonja. I met her when I was working at the Doctor's office. We became friends. She was a very special person. I would still run into her occasionally. We would always hug and was glad to see one another.
God Bless you all!

Bobby, Terri, Mike and Family, I will always remember the wonderful laughter and fun times Sonja and I had while working at Peebles. I've cried with her, laughed with her, and we've listened to each other's hopes, fears, and dreams throughout the years. I pray God will keep you comforted. Love, Edna

   Our sincerest condolences are extended to Sonja's family and friends at this difficult time.

Sweet Sweet Spirit

Words and Music by Doris Akers (21 May 1923 - 26 July 1995), 1962

There's a sweet sweet spirit in this place
And I know that it's the spirit of the Lord

There are sweet expressions on each face
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord

Sweet Holy Spirit
Sweet heavenly dove
Stay right here with us
Filling us with your love
And for these blessings
We lift our hearts in praise (hearts in praise)
Without a doubt we'll know that we have been revived
When we shall leave this place
