Rosemary and family, just wanted you to know how fortunate we all are for having “Sonny” in our lives. We have been friends with him for over 75 years, from the early days of Quincy through his long heroic struggle to live for his family. He cheerfully took whatever life dealt him and continued on to accumulate the real treasures of this life. He died a very rich man who shared his richness with everyone. We miss him.

Rose Mary, I feel very sad…I’m so sorry for your loss…I’ve been wanting to come down and visit with you and Sonny for so long…I loved Sonny…He watched me play football and always spoke to me…He was one of the few people whom , I believe, that had faith in me…He always had something encouraging to say to me whenever we ran into each other…
Rose Mary, you and your folks are family to me…Sorry I never made it home much over the years…The roads I traveled were rough and rather twisted…They always seemed to take me a few more miles away from home…You are always in my prayers and thoughts…God Bless, I love you all…
