It is with sorrow and heavy hearts we say good-bye to our precious son, father, father-in-law, husband, papa, brother... Sonny went to be with the Lord early Sunday morning around 5am. His courage and fight were inspiring til the very end. He was one of a kind. Always quick to apologize, quick to say he loved us and quick to forgive. It was obvious what was important to him in this life by just looking around his room - special things we made for him as kids were still on his shelves and there were notebooks filled with scriptures & people he was praying for. He was disciplined and focused and deeply loved others. He loved to bless people with special surprises or meet their needs in practical ways. He was full of character and had a great personality. He was amazingly talented and could play anything on the piano by ear - he would hear something once, then play the exact thing only jazzed up and with his own flair. Above all my dad loved God with his entire being & was tremendously strong in his faith. He was always praying & encouraging us to do the same bc God has the power to transform lives.. Just being in my dad's presence was calming and he was one of the most remarkable people God has ever created. There will be a hole in our lives & hearts until we are united again. .. We also want to say how much we appreciate all the love and support we have felt during this difficult time more than we can say.
