"Sonny was one of the finest men I had the pleasure of calling my friend. He had a great sense of humor, was friendly and generous to all AND was an awesome cook ! We had many parallels in our lives. When his dear mom was in decline, Sonny and I would share Mom sitting tips. He passed on several items from her to make my mom's last years more comfortable. My memories will always hold a special place for Sonny. He truly was one of a kind !"
