Sharing an old on-set photo of the two of them together, Steve captioned it with, “At a loss for words. Devastated.  @sonyaeddy is one of the greatest. We worked together for a long time 🙂 and we had so much fun. I cherished our on screen relationship but our off screen relationship much more. Kindred spirits. There was not a time we did not laugh. Sonya always made me laugh and she would never let me pass without a big hug..Sonya, (I hate using was) is an incredible LIGHT. She touched so many with her talent and just who she is. She will be missed. Prayers and love to her family.  Fly to the Angels, Sonya. I know the Good Lord has you. Love you.”

Many of his fans commented with, “Omg.. you two had a good relationship on the show. I was looking forward to seeing her character become a doctor. Rest in God’s peace and thank you for all the great on screen moments,” along with, “The chemistry you all had was so great. It wasn’t forced or hammy. It was just right. I miss her already.”

Sonya died after experiencing complications from a non-emergency surgery. She went in for a pre-scheduled surgery on December 9th and was released two days later. Yet, she got sick and returned to the hospital on December 15th. It was then discovered that she had developed an infection that became uncontainable. She was placed on life support and then died later that night.

As many fans probably know, Sonya began her long run on the ABC soap opera in 2006. She also appeared in TV shows and films such as “Seinfeld,” “Patch Adams,” “Reba,” “Monk,” “Joan of Arcadia,” “CSI,” “Glee,” “Castle” and “Fresh Off The Boat.”
