May God's mighty hands comfort you Corey and Baltimore family. I have known Sonny since I was 5 yrs. old. I am Walter Bland's adopted daughter, Dee Dee. As recently as three weeks ago I saw Sonny and he gave me a kiss and told me loved me like he always did. He could really make you laugh with his dry humor. May he rest in peace.
