So sad to hear of the passing of my uncle Sonny. Have so many wonderful memories of family gathers especially Thanksgivings and Hunt family summer birthday parties. My mom’s little brother who meant the world to her. She will cherish the many years they had together. Rest now in peace uncle Sonny. -Debbie Gadd
