Tributes

Sonny,
Your time on this earth was spent the best you saw fit Your
passing will be moured by me, but eventually my heart will heal
with the exception of the piece you took along with you. God sees
better than all: He knew why He took you home. Rest my dear, for
you're now out of this cruel world and into your eternal home.
Love Always.
Your Mom, Ann




I sit here, and I recall the fun times we shared as "Lil Boys".
and then I think of us maturing into grown adults; we both went
our separate ways and lived our separate lives the way we saw fit.
It's hard to see you gone, but my mind is eased, for I know that "the
Lord giveth and the Lord taketh." He took you home, "Sonny",
where you'll lean on the Everlasting Arm, and I'll see you when we
all gather at the beautiful river.
Your Brother, Uonel




Sonny,
I frequently recall that morning of Saturday, December 16,
when I received word of your fatal accident..the first words that
came to my mind were "No, not Sonny...." Those words remain
the same today, but I know that you're only resting with your dear
Father and precious Lord.
Love, Made




Lucky,
I will miss your cheerful smile and joyful personality. You.
Chinaman, Donnie and I have shared many wonderful times to-
gether. Jonathan and I miss you very much. May you rest in peace,
safe in the Master's arms.
Julia
