  17. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Sabino (Sonny) Lontine.
    Sabino Lontine was my step uncle.
    I though he was such a fun guy. We sat with him at one of Julian’s singing competitions. We had a ball that night.
    My cousin Julian, and I are pretty close. I think the world of Julian and his mom, Rose.
    I wish I had know my step Uncle better and would have been around him more.
    I Pray God will lead you and Bless you and your family through this trying time in your life.
