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.
"TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY, IS TO BE
PRESENT WITH THE LORD".
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.
Our sincerest condolences are extended to Sonja's family and friends at this difficult

Sweet Sweet Spirit
Words and Music by
Doris Akers (21 May 1923 - 26 July 1995), 1962
There's a sweet sweet spirit in
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
