God Bless! / Mommy-To Shayla My deepest sympathy to you and your entire family, she was only here for 13 years but you have so many memories to hold on too. Please know you and your family will be in my prayers. My daughter passed from Bacterial Meningitis, in Feb.10,2001, I am still devastated with the loss. With time it doesn't get any easier, I have just come to the conclusion you have to learn to live with it. She is a beautiful Angel, and I am so sorry for your loss.
Deepest Sympathy / Visitor (none) What a beautiful girl! I noticed that in every picture she was smiling. I know your family is heartbroken and words from a stranger are certainly no comfort,but please know that there are those of us who happen on these sad and tragic websites that do offer up prayers in your behalf that you may one day have peace in your heart. May your precious memories of this beautiful child comfort you in the days ahead. God Bless you.
Im so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful sweet young lady known as your daughter Sofia. She is so very beautiful. May she rejoice with our Lord in the most amazing Heavens. Sofia has received her wings as she soars to new & more beautiful heights God bless you. You are all in my prayers. May you find comfort in knowing Sofia is now in the safest hands of the Lord. I also lost my cousin who was 19 KATIE... I know its not the same but i know how much it hurts to lose a loved 1. Feel free to have a look @ her web site i have made for her. www.katie-harris.memory-of.com
And God Said..... / Diane Cassidy- Angel Mom-Katie
I said, God I hurt And God said, I know
I said, I cry alot And God said, That's why I gave you tears
I said, Life is so hard And God said, That's why I gave you loved ones
I said, But my loved one died!! And God said, So did mine!!
I said, It's such a great loss!! And God said, I saw mine nailed to a cross!!
I said, But your loved one lives!! And God said, So does yours!!
I said, Where is she now?? And God said, My Son is by my side and Your Daughter is in my arms!!
God Bless You! / Towanna Lane (None) To the bereaved family:
I was on Memory-Of lighting a candle in memorance of my friends father. I saw Sofia picture and it really took me by surprise because I have a 12 yr. old daughter. I can't imagine life without her, so I can't say I know what you are going through. I do know that there is a God that sits in high places and he knows all about sorrows. He will see you through, he is the same God today as on yesterday. His love never changes. May God be with you and bless you and your family.

Molly, I am heartbroken at the news. Although I never had Sofia in my classroom, she embodied the "life" energy of Whittier Elementary School. If there is any child we all can easily remember with a smile, it is Sofia. I was always impressed by your untiring efforts to ensure Sofia did well in everything she did. Your love and dedication as a parent towards your daughter was beautiful to watch as both she and you grew. My experience, and those of many others, in building a new school, getting to know our students and community, was made very special by your family. I will never forget the Whittier family, of which Sofia was such a shining and important part. I share in the grief over this unthinkable loss and my family and prays for your comfort.
In love and sorrow, Mrs. Gretchen Stewart-Seay Atlanta, GA

Dear Sofia, / Nicole Neurer (Friend)
I hope you know what an impact you made on people's lives. And I hope you know that not a day goes by that I don't miss you. Felicia and I talked about you on the 3-year anniversary of the day you died. We both still wear your bracelet. It's hard to believe it's already been 3 years. You made everyone smile. You were one of those kids who never is in a bad mood, and even when you are, you make sure everyone else's problems are fixed before you even mention yours. You were so incredibly selfless. And I envied that the first day I met you. We always talked about me coming over, and we'd always have wars to see who could write better with their left hand. :) I wear the bracelet on my left arm, because of that. I didn't get a lot of time with you.. but the time I got was amazing. When I got to school the day everyone found out you died, I didn't even believe Brittany when she told me. I laughed and told her not to joke about that. Then I got to advisory, and you weren't there. I figured you were sick, like you had been.. and Brittany was just lying to freak me out. Then the teacher came over to the table where we always sat. Me, you, Erin, and Casey. And she told us what happened. Erin started crying, Casey and I were emotionless. I was more in shock, I think. I didn't cry until math, because that was the hour Mr. Wippler got on the intercom and announced it. I had to leave class. I still cry thinking about you. I miss you so much. You were one of those girls who everyone got along with. And you didn't seem to notice how everyone envied you. Ha :) It's still so hard to believe you're gone. There's a girl at school that looks almost exactly like you. Whenever I see her, I do a double take. Like, some part of me hopes you'll just come strolling through the front doors. You were 2 weeks younger than me, exactly. I always make some sort of birthday food on your birthday.. just so you know we all remember. You're one of the most amazing girls I've ever met, and no one could ever measure up to you. I love you, Sofia. I'll see you again someday. Close

SOFIA IN OUR THOUGHTS / JONATHAN CEBALLOS-GONZALEZ (OLD FRIEND )
I COULDNT BELIEVE WHAT I HAD HEARD! SO MANY YEARS OF ELEMENTARY TOGETHER! MANY LAUGHS AND JOKES. I REMEMBER HER FACE HER HAIR HER BANG ALWAYS TO THE LEFT SIDE OF HER FACE. HER BEAUTIFUL SMILE. I HADE PROBABLY 3-4 YEARS OF CLASSES WITH HER. I REMEMBER ONE DAY MOLLY HAD BROUGHT HER A CAKE FOR HER BIRTHDAY TO SHARE WITH THE CLASS (MS. HAGEDORN'S CLASS) I WAS REALLY EXCITED AS WE SANG HER BIRTHDAY SONG.I THINK SHE WAS TURNING 8. I WAS STANDING WITH SOFIA AS SHE STARTED TO CRY BY HER MOM, I REMEMBER ASKING HER WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR HER CRYING ON HER BIRTHDAY. MOLLY REPLIED SAYING IT WAS THE SAME REASON TO WHY BABY'S CRY WHEN THEY ARE BORN. THE DAY OF BIRTH IS BEAUTIFUL I THINK SHE WAS VERY HAPPY OF TURNING ONE MORE YEAR OLD! I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN! I REMEMBER HER! SHE STILL WITH US IN OUR HEARTS AND THOUGHTS! MANY BLESSINGS TO HER FAMILY!

I Love You Sofia. / Nicole Neurer (Friend)
I haven't been on this site in so long.
I think about you every day.
I don't like coming to this site, it makes me miss you more.
I wonder what it'd be like if you were still here,
and I thank God every day that I hugged you the last day I saw you.
You were so funny, so pretty.
And I know everyone says the same thing in all their posts.
I love you,
I always will.
I miss you as every day passes.
I haven't taken the bracelet off once,
except to shower.
I wish I didn't have to wear it,
or that it even exists.
If it didn't, it'd mean you were still here.
It's almost your sweet sixteen.
It's almost been three years since you died.
It doesn't seem like that long.
I'm crying as I write this.
I hope you're watching over your family,
and all your friends.
You don't know the extent of how much you're missed.
I love you honey. <3 Close

One and a half years / Mom
I just can not beileve it has been this long I still can hear your voice and see your smile. Oh how I love you, nothing compares to that. And on top of this it is Fathers day, Jason misses being able to have you as his only chance at celebrating Fathers Day. It is just not fair on so many levels yu are and were so great and the world is a lesser place without you. Thinking of you always,with all my heart, Mom Close
I often think of all you left behind, the trivial possessions, the not so trivial family and friends. This earth and the sadness of heartless cruelty and murder, I envy you leaving all of this behind, all but the people with broken hearts from the loss of our Sofia. So many of us think of you and wish like crazy you were still here. I believe I am the President of that club. Missing you as always and forever, Mom
Sofia/ Kelci Radke (Friend)

You were very quit but when ever i say you, you always had a big smile on your face. sofia you will always be in my heart. i will never forget you. When it was a couple of days after your funeral, I woke up in the morning and went to school. When we were all setting at the lunch table. to myself i was like were is sofia. It just still feels like a dream i am having and that i will never ever wake up.
P.S. GOD BLESS YOU!! I WILL ALWYS THINK OF YOU. Close
