Polly and family,
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Sonny. The memories and good times we have of Sonny and our families are treasures for sure. Lots of good times in the good ole days. Sonny always had a smile and always made time to talk. We lost our father this past year and it is not easy for sure. Cherish the memories and the good times and may God comfort all of you during this sad and difficult time.
