“She was just — one word that I can think of is joy,” Maurice Benard.

“I’m getting emotional talking about it,” Kirsten Storms shared. “She was one of the most positive people that has ever worked in this building…I told her once she gave good hugs, and from that point on she hugged me every time she saw me.”

Lynn Herring said, “Sonya was such a beautiful soul. Her smile would light up everybody’s day. She never complained about being tired. She was a spark of joy.”

“She had a big spirit and a light around her,” Donnell Turner gushed. “You knew when she was in the room but I mean that in all the best ways.”

“I know she was the head nurse of GH but she truly was that figure in our personal lives,” Rebecca Herbst shared. “It’s been really hard.”

“She had such a mix of humor and strength,” Finola Hughes said of Sonya. “She would laugh at anything and gave the best hugs I ever had.”

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC.
