  1. Sopia was a dear friend while we were living in Billings. Even with her medical problems she loved it when we picked her up to take her to play the poker machines. Missed talking with her on the phone when she said it was to hard to hear any more. Love you sweet Sophie!! May you rest in peace in Gods arms!
