We love Sonny and will miss him. A part of our lives are missing with him gone. He always yelled I had pinched his butt. Lol. He always wanted Vernon to stay and drink his tequila. Jr loved his trucks too and bought him one told him when he plays in the nfl he will get him a real one. My daughters adored him and would always joke with him and draw him pictures.My heart goes out to his daughter and grandchildren.
