Sonia Castro Jacobs

Personal Description:



Dearest Auntie Sonia, You are forever my hero. You gave me life and you gave others hope. Thank you for enriching our life with your love. We miss you so very much and life here on earth is not the same. Yet with you as our angel, we will pick up the pieces of our broken hearts and live life to the fullest, in your honor. I love you.

Personal Description:

Auntie Sonia was born Valentines Day 1955 in a tiny island called Cebu. She was the youngest of 10 and beloved by many whom she touched worldwide. Her passion was family and God,and earthly passions were art and culture. Up to the time she left us on 2012 New Year’s Eve, she filled her life (and our lives) with joy and adventure in the 56 years 10 months and 17 days on this earth. She will forever be her loving husband, Mark’s and beautiful daughter Samantha’s Angel. Sonia’s beauty, her vibrant legacy, and the rich tapestry of her unique being will be with us to infinity.
