This is how it had begun…. A letter from Maya Loizeaux, Germany Oh, Mira! You can only imagine how much fun I was having re-living these memories! It was very difficult to video myself though! I thought it would be so easy! I must have done like 10 videos!! I was wanting to do it this way and then that way and it all felt so staged and un-natural….Hahaha! Me? Feeling un-natural or staged? NEVER! But yes! I was glad to get your email telling me to get my butt in gear otherwise I would’ve agonized over every detail (as I’m sure you are already doing...!). So glad you are doing this for your sweet girl, such a tremendous.

4.It REALLY pisses Sonia off when: she or someone she knows and is close to gets hurt in a rotten/malicious way 5. Sonia’s best quality is laughter and smiles, and a huge heart overflowing with good will and peace towards everyone who is blessed with the good fortune of meeting her! 8. Sonia absolutely could not live without … hmm..surfboard? Making new friendships and memories :

If I had to choose ONE adjective to describe Sonia, it would be… Amazing! I think what makes Sonia the happiest is Travel and meeting open-minded people who aren’t afraid to LIVE LIFE!! My favorite of Sonia’s Russian/Hebrew/American expressions is Gooda Cheeecken! Sonia would love me forever if I moved to Hawaii and learned to surf!:

I miss Sonia tremendously, she is an exceptional woman, so full of life, happy and everyone wants to be around her. I am looking forward to the day when we can all re-connect!  6. Sonia would rather die than be told she needs to conform to someone else’s ideal From the story by Maya Loizeaux, Germany :

10. What travel destination you would suggest Sonia to go to? Why? Amsterdam and not just for its seedy red-light district. The city is FULL of charm, culture, a million things to do while bicycling around and a night life that never seems to stop, just slows down enough to enjoy it. On that note, we’re here in Germany for one more year Sonia! Get your butt over here!! :

My fondest memory of/with Sonia is…The first time we met on Martha’s Vineyard working for Triangle Fitness, writing our first song together at The Black Bean (?) , was it called the Black Bean then?? Going deep sea fishing with the Australians..ha-ha! Definitely the first and only time I’ve ever tried surfing, we went to Aquinnah, that was really cool. Of course all of the party times on the Vineyard and at GMC (Halloween 2003 yayuhh…) From the story by Maya Loizeaux, Germany :

If I could tease Sonia about one thing, it would be about the time she …. and I and Amanda(?) went to Killington Bear mountain festival. I don’t remember what the festival was about…There were no lights on the car for the long drive back to Green Mountain College and then we crashed Nate’s house. THEN, one of my favorites to tease Sonia about was “MAYA! The boat! We’re going to miss the boat!!” Martha’s Vineyard 2002, living at Mike’s and waking up to Sasha & Digweed “I want my CD back!” From the story by Maya Loizeaux, Germany :

Slide 126:

From the story by Eric Wilde , San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua I think we definitely need to mention "Farkle Time" and also, "I want a Cheeseburger-Sonia’s famous hung over cure" Here is a great story, slash Nickname for Sonia: "Sidewalk Monster!" This is when we had a party at my house in SD, and late at night we couldn’t find her, until someone did passed out in the bushes on the sidewalk in front of the house, in which case, we named her the Sidewalk Monster, she will love that one trust me!

:

Here s a quote from me personally: "Sonia, are you really going to put Mustard on that?“ I would also like to add that Sonia's spirit is what keeps so many of us going, I have never met someone with such a powerful Ora around them at all times, and it is such a great inspiration to anyone lucky enough to be in her presence - which I hope I can be soon . From the story by Eric Wilde , San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Part N. 1 from the story by Holly Peterson Somehow Sonia organized a meet in the middle trip for all of her friends....Ski …music ...snow.. Four of us packed into my truck and set out. Between Sonia and I we had enough road food we never had to eat out. If you have vacationed with Sonia you know she always get a great deal, this time it gas SUPER cheap and six people and a kitchen and all ski equipment in a motel room with two queen beds. It turned out great. In addition Sonia also invited and knew five more that were part of our crew. Last night there, after three solid nights of concerts and solid days of boarding, it all came to a sad end when they started packing up the last band. :

Last night there, after three solid nights of concerts and solid days of boarding, it all came to a sad end when they started packing up the last band.

Part N2 The crew was gathering one by one trying to figure out when to go and what to do, but Sonia was strangely missing. Everything was so quiet without the music. You know the kind of snow quiet, all sounds absorbed by the thick layer of insulation. Then there was a high pitched screaming shooting through the canyon, like a bomb flying. The explosion of the single red sky rocket, broke that silence and the darkness that not only comes from a lack of light but the darkness of the end of one of the best times in your life.

Part N3 I started screaming RUSSIA...SONIA...SUPER KGB.... As did everyone in our crew, (all of the people in our group knew that she had Mexican fireworks with her) because we knew she could hear us thru the canyon, echoing off the snow. She was letting us know she was safe. Celebration has begun again, breaking the melancholy of the last song that can tend to linger, for some more than others From the story by Holly Peterson :

As did everyone in our crew, (all of the people in our group knew that she had Mexican fireworks with her) because we knew she could hear us thru the canyon, echoing off the snow. She was letting us know she was safe. Celebration has begun again, breaking the melancholy of the last song that can tend to linger, for some more than others From the story by Holly Peterson

Love you Sonia for all the times you have shocked me back to loving life. Happy birthday! Holly Peterson :

My fondest memory of/with Sonia is... My first time visiting Sonia in Maui started off with me getting off the plane and being greeted by Sonia with a fresh flowered Lei. We get in the car and first thing Sonia says is "Oh, I'm going to take you on this awesome hike. It's really close to the airport so we can go from here." Now mind you, I just got off of a long six hour flight, but I figure it's a beautiful day and I'm on Maui, Let's DO IT! To continue.. From the story by Priscilla Diaz, San Diego-Boston :

Slide 141:

My fondest memory of/with Sonia is... Part N. 2. We get to the hike, I think it's called 7 crossings, and its off to a great start until we get to this waterfall with a huge, high cliff wall. Sonia looks at me and says "Come on, Grab the rope and climb up the wall." The rope is made out of yarn and doesn't even seem the least bit reliable or safe. I looked at her like she was crazy.......No one was getting me to climb up a wall with no harness or safety net, we were in the middle of the Maui jungle. But after a few hesitations and Sonia already half way up the wall, I gave in. It was one of the scariest things I have ever done. The best part was I got a bloody stubbed toe!! We swam at the pool above and it was amazing. That is one of the many memories with Sonia I will Never forget! P.S. -According to Sonia The rope has since been removed...... From the story by Priscilla Diaz, San Diego-Boston

Sonia is a very special person and has impacted my life by… Sonia has impacted my life in many ways. She is one of my most genuine, kind, and dearest friends.

So here's some stuff I love about Sonia: She smiles with her whole face, she is a true friend and only offers advice from her heart She will always make time for fun..and can make a good time even better than you thought. She found her match in canine form! She has a true mother's instinct for Rory....and its so cute how she holds Rory like a baby and Rory hugs Sonia. Little Liger! Sonia gives everyone a chance and judges people for what they have on the inside. She says cute little mixed English things..like this one time when we walked to the beach in the morning and both agreed we had to go quickly back to the house to do our morning business..I said I couldn't cause the boys were home. We got home and she said, "See..dehrs no boyz, now we goes stink the bathrooms:)" haha When I lived with her, she always made lots of soup:) Don't know if this is Russian thing or a skiers thing...or a Sonia thing:) he-he From the story by Jessica Van Leuven :

Slide 169:

I gave this quote to Sonia because it reminded me of her!! She posts it as her favorite quote on the Facebook.... "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand & margarita in other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out & screaming: WOO HOO” What a ride! From the story by Summer Lynn Peters, Hawaii

From the story by Summer Lynn Peters, Hawaii My story about Sonia is........ At my "going away" party I was trying to sell my surfboard to somebody.

Needless to say, he wasn't impressed and didn't buy it!!! LOL
