Lee, Catrina, Virginia and families. My heart is heavy. Uncle Sonny was so special to me. We were thrilled when his tour of duty in the Army was over. I remember him wearing his uniform and he was so proud to serve our Country. I also will never forget how he lit up the room with his infectious smile! I have so many wonderful memories that I will cherish. My favorite is your Mom and Dad's wedding. I was beyond excited for them and was so happy to have a new cousin to love, our sweet Lee. Then came our sweet girls, Catrina and then Virginia. All of you brought so much JOY and HAPPINESS to his life (including his grandchildren & great-grandchildren). I loved Aunt Cathy to pieces! I loved spending a few weeks in the summers with all of you, you may not remember because y'all were toddlers. Your Dad was an amazing father, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather, (BINGO-brother), uncle and friend to ALL. Praise be to God for this light which shined in all of our hearts. I know he is at home with his Savior and the love of his life. May God bless all of you during this difficult time and may HE strengthen you in the days and weeks ahead. All of you are in my heart and prayers. With all my love and sympathy, Judy
RIP Uncle Sonny!
