Rest in Peace Uncle Sonny 💔
This world will not be the same without you.
You always had a contagious smile on your face that lifted me up when I was sad.
You never met a person you didn’t like. And never spoke bad of anyone.
I miss you so very much Uncle Sony...
I know in my heart that you’re in a much better place but I’m still feeling selfish and want you here with us.
Praying for all of our family and your friends that know you so well.
You are an angel in heaven now .
Please watch over all of us .
Love you forever and ever... Love you 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

What can i say... Uncle Sonny was the first person to make you smile. When he walked in anywhere you knew it was him. I will never forget the sound of his laughter. He is also the person who taught me to put ice in my coffee. He was a great man and will be missed dearly. I love you and I know you and Grandma ( Jeanette) are up there watching over everyone drinking coffee and reminiscing. Until we meet again.

Wow, I don't know where to start. He was an awesome , funny, caring, loving, Uncle. Every time he would walk into the room he would light it up. He had a special way of showing u love.

When Uncle Sonny walked into a room, we knew he was there with his boastful laugh. He made me laugh so hard sometimes that I'd cry. He was a family man and was always there for them. If anyone needed him, he was there. He would give the shirt off his back to someone if they asked for it. He was a special human being. He always made others feel comfortable.

I have faith that he is now in heaven and driving the angels and God crazy. I'm so sorry Aunt Cat, and all my cousins that we had to lose him. Let there be comfort that he is no longer suffering and remember all the people's lives that he has touched in one shape or form.

Until we meet again. Uncle Sonny, I will miss you. I will always love and never forget you.
