Sonia N. PerezJune 15, 1962 ~ December 11, 2017 (age 55)
Sonia N. (Hernandez) Perez 55 of Holyoke passed away December 11, 2017. Sonia passed away after a heartbreaking battle with drug addiction. Throughout her life she had survived many difficult and life shattering experiences that she felt could only be covered by the numbing effects of drugs. Although unfortunate we will not remember Sonia for her struggles, only the loving, bighearted person she was. She was more than that. She was a mother to six, daughter, sister, grandmother, and friend to many. Her outgoing and friendly personality led her to befriend many from different walks of life. She never once discriminated against anyone, and was often helping others- even when she couldn't help herself. How we wish things could have been different and she could have received the same in return; no judgement, just understanding and concern. We mourn Sonia- all that she was given, all that she deserved, and all that she could have been. We will carry her and her story on in hopes that we do not lose sight of our loved ones and focus on their addiction rather than the person. Sonia was a good, kind soul who rose above her struggles until it was too hard to stay afloat, and fell into an addiction far greater than she could control. She will be missed immensely. Visiting will be at the Funeral Home on Tuesday Dec.19th from 6-8 p.m.
