My Aunt Sophie used to bring home chocolate snails from the bakery department where she worked. She would hand them out to us kids knowing we would devour them and love her for it…and we did. Christmas time found her at our home where her dogs knew how to remove the squeaky thingy from those little puppy toys. These and other memories remind me that I will miss Aunt Sophie.
We both became (more dedicated) Christians about the same time in the seventies. Life had brought us both to a place where it seemed like only God could help. So we prayed together and shared a few things about our adult lives. We kept in touch over the years, always checking in to see how each of us was getting along. I’ll miss praying with her.
Sophie was a serious person, but she loved to have fun too. She was very private and tried not to complain even when faced with her own mortality. I will miss our conversations, and I will miss Aunt Sophie, but I look forward to our reunion in heaven someday.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Sophie Allen, I’m so sorry for your lost, loosing a loved one in death is never easy the pain the grief and the feeling of helplessness can seem unbearable no matter what is the cause but allow me please to share with you what has help me and my family cope with our loss remembering the words of Jesus and what he did, Jesus cured every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity (Matthew 9;35 ) but in the paradise new world mankinds flesh will have become fresher than in youth (Job 33:25 )resurrected humans will have return with sound bodies.
