Dear Jan
My prayers are with you. I know even thought you knew this was bound to happen , it does not make it any easier. We will all miss his silliness. We will all hold tightly to the memories we have of Sonny. Mostly funny ones , he always made me laugh at the silly things he would say or do. All our Love
