Zonya was such a sweet lady and I have never seen her mad or upset. She was always smiling and eager to help any way she could. Zonya will be missed by all who knew her. I’m sorry I can’t be at her service.
We love you Zonya. Rest in peace my sweet friend.
Zonya was the friend God gave me to get through a very tough time in my life. Just talking to her made you feel better. Not only a great friend to myself, but of many many others that she met. She Really Never Met a Stranger. The amount of love she had for her friends could be told by all the hugs and laughter she gave. YOU will be missed Zonya.
