I have so many memories from our teen years, it's hard to pick. Sonny dated a best friend of mine and I dated Sonny's best friend. We went on so many double dates, every weekend of the year 1968. Sonny would usually choose where we went, what we drove, what we did and even what we ate...ha! He had such a fun personality and always a hard worker. Loved him so much, Bonnie Lamons Schroer
