I dont have the words to Express the loss I feel in my heart. He was a great man, husband, father and friend to many. When I think of him I automatically think of Linda,because they were one. A devoted loving wife. If you wanted to see what love looked like all you had to do was see them. Love you Sonny and Linda. Rest Well my friend. Tell The master hello for me.

The world is a darker place today with the loss of Sonny. When I called for a project I never had any worries when Sonny said he would get it completed, his word was always good. A rare trait that is hard to find these days. My prayers for his family and fellow workers.
