  7. Countless happy memories at the Sorensen homes on Woodbine and Amity Road-by the pool, just hanging out at the house or going out to dinner, Bobby calling my mom at all hours to see where the hell Amy and I were, the ever repeated mantra “the Candy Asses”, Martha’s Vineyard, The Island House in Florida-I still bear the scars of a horrible sunburn from me and Amy collecting coquina shells and smelling up the bathroom much to Georgia and Bobby’s chagrin, the list could go on. The fact that “Amy Sorensen” was my kids safe word growing up speaks volumes as they all know her without having met her. Bobby and Georgia and the entire Sorensen family are a part of the fabric of my life. Love and prayers to them all.

    Nancy and Elliot Bauer

  9. Mrs Sorensen, Chris, Amy – Sending my deepest condolences and sympathies to all. Many fond memories hanging out at your home on Woodbine during my high school days. Will always remember Mr Sorensenโ€™s larger than life personality, boundless energy and huge smile.
    With warmest regards,
    Neal DeLaurentis

  10. I had the pleasure of being on Mr. Sorensen’s bus to Amity. Your dad was always in a good mood, and we would talk about football, or his trucking company. The best spot on the bus was the first row, behind the driver. Your family should be very proud of his legacy and a lifetime of accomplishment.

  11. God bless your family and may he bring you comfort! We have countless great memories both in Woodbridge and up at Sunapee, the Bishop family will treasure all of those times.

    Our prayers are with you! With great appreciation for the many fond memories.

    Joe, Sharon and Jack Bishop; Andy and Barbara Bishop
