Dear Sonny was such a delight to listen to - he had many stories to tell!

He remembered vividly so much of the years gone past. I loved to hear his joyful recollections of early childhood memories with he and my father (L.T.) playing together as youngsters. It was amazing to learn from him that he was responsible for introducing my mother (Maude) and father to each other at Panama City Beach during College Spring Break. Another great memory with Sonny was when he took me flying back in the mid-1980's when I was a just a teenager.

He was a man of strong mind and spirit and I thank God for Sonny and the lifetime of love he showed to my father and to me.
I miss him now, but I know assuredly that he is free of pain and he is at total peace. We can look forward to the day when we are all reunited in heaven and we will all celebrate for eternity!
God bless Davis and his family.
God bless Billy and his family.
Thank you to his caregivers in helping him during a most difficult time in his life journey.
Regretfully, we will not be able to attend the memorial service, but he and his loved ones are in our hearts and prayers.
Love,
Lisa Fain Tyrrell, husband Thomas Tyrrell, and son Simon Taylor Tyrrell

I delivered meals to Mr.Broadway and I feel I had a close tie to him. One morning I delivered his meal and found him on his bedroom floor. I called 911 and later learned that he was taken to the hospital. Two weeks later I delivered his meal and found him sitting in his favorite chair. I was so happy to see him and I asked him if he knew who I was and he said "you're the one that found me on the bedroom floor and called 911". From then on I always said "hello" to him when I delivered his meals.
