She put up a fierce fight, and we knew this day would come, but no one can be truly prepared for this. Sophia kept us and everybody in suspense and would overcome everything thrown at her. We thought she would stroll out of this as always! I can truly say we are very proud to be a part of her fight for she brought so many people into our lives and showed us the true meaning of love, hope, and especially faith! Her short life touched people around the world that she had never even met. She fought a long hard battle for the short life she lived and she is our champion, our birdie, and our warrior princess diva! And as someone said, Sophia had all the holes in her heart, but now sits perfectly in heaven with our Lord and leaves us with a humongous hole in our hearts! You can finally hang up your gloves, Sophia. We know you were tired. We love you. We are proud of the fight you fought! Fly high our little angel, until we meet again!
