Diane, So sorry to hear of Uncle Sonny's passing. While I hadn't seen him years I asked about him often when I talked to Darlene. The things I remember: His cigar, his contagious good mood, and good humor. He will be missed. John, Kem, Eli, and Reagan Deehr Seattle, Wa.

You were adored by your family I do know that. My Mom will be happy to give you a big hug. I too remember you whistling away with a cigar in hand. RIP Uncle Sonny

I’m sure going to miss Uncle Sonny. I know I haven’t seen him for years but what I remember him as whistling around the house eating nuts. That’s my memories of him. He’ll be sadly missed! Rip Uncle Sonny. 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻
