Sonny and I met at McDonald's, and some how stumbled onto the fact that I worked at Interface, and that I know your daughter, who at the time, was working in Interface's Sample Department.

Sonny was one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever met. It was always a pleasure to bump into him somewhere. He always had a smile and a nice word or two. God has received a good and faithful servant.

To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time.
(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May you find comfort in the Scriptures at
John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 26:19.
