Dearest Lena,
So sorry to hear about Sonny. We so enjoyed sitting behind you at church and visiting and that is why, even though we are sad, we can be glad also because we know he is now at home and that we will all be joining there later. God bless and take care of you as only He can. Love, Becky and Gayle, Colorado City, Texas

I have so many happy memories of summer's spent with Aunt Betty and Uncle Sonny since I was a baby until I was grown . He always made us feel happy and loved. He and my Dad were the two best men I have ever known.
