Sonny was a kind, considerate man & always had a friendly smile. I knew he & Shirley from when Shirley worked at the hospital. Whenever I would see him out & about he always took time to stop & chat. He loved Shirley dearly & she always came up in every conversation. He will be missed.

May God give you comfort knowing he is not in pain any longer.

Sonny was always so busy, never seen anyone so active. Said he was 39 years old and sure acted it. He was the sweetest person, never too busy for you. He sure did love Shirley, too.We will miss him very much. He was a GREAT man.
