  1. To Sonny\’s Family: Our family sends you our deepest sympathy. We will always remember .so many. things about him: Like how he used to come on Sunday mornings to meet Ed for golf and he always had a big box of donuts for the kids. And, how much the kids used to like just sitting on his lap while he was waiting. His sense of humor was wonderful. He always had us laughing. Sonny was a wonderful man and he will be missed. Love, Ed and Carole Machel
