Frank, I have always considered you a friend and my brother. Your uncanny ability to bring fun and laughter to a room was always spectacular. You and I have shared many moments as I grew as a young Father. Your acceptance of all, your ability to command presence in a room and the love for your family are traits of your personality that will be missed. Your love is a loss to us all. We will miss you man!

To my Uncle Sonny,
You will be missed now and all the days to come after. I don’t think anyone can ever forget how you could make a roomful of people laugh, or how you always greeted everyone with a giant hug and a kiss on the cheek. Your life was a treasure, your loss is a tragedy and I pray you rest easy. The memories you shared with me will always be kept in a special place in my heart.

I’ll be missing you..
Love you always Uncle Sonny.

Uncle Sonny,
The loss of you is unmeasurable, but I hold on to all of your endless stories, crazy jokes and bright smiles. I am saddened to realize that people in this world will no longer have the pleasure of listening to you tell a story or a joke, but my goodness...paradise is truly full of joy and laughter with the addition of you. I find comfort in knowing that you’re never more than a thought away, because as long as I have a memory, you will always be in my heart. Your life was a blessing, your memory is gold, you are so loved, and will be missed immensely. To all of those grieving, I pray for you. I pray that God will touch you with healing hands and give you peace and comfort. Uncle Sonny, yes...the loss of you is so unmeasurable, but so is the love I have for you.

To my Big Brother Sonny, it is with a full heart of Love to say that I will truly miss you.
Second born of six, and our family circle of siblings is broke...we will never be the same again. I forever will miss your sense of humor, your smile, your laugh, and will always remember the way you entered a room.
All heads would turn, so charismatic, so handsome. I was sad when I heard that God called you home, but content to know that you have no more pain. May you rest well in paradise, until our paths cross again.
Love you Son!

My Uncle Sonny will forever be etched into my heart and soul. He always had a way to make me laugh, as well as he did onto others. His presence was always felt in any room. He was a very charismatic man that everyone gravitated towards. He taught me many different things about life that I will never forget. He was a fighter, which is what I admired the most about my uncle. I wish that I could see him one more time so that I could thank him for showing me to always look on the brighter side of things and of course, Laugh. To my dearest Uncle Sonny, I love you and will miss you very much. May you rest in paradise forever!
