Sonny was one of a kind I'll always remember him and my cat and the peanut butter chews he always made. He was always so good to my dad Charles Charlie Davidson and they shared many memories that I'll always remember. Will miss you.

Thank you Sonny for your service to our country. Most of all thank you for being so kind to my dad, Charlie Davidson. You made his latter years good ones by asking him to come spend time with you and go hunting. I will miss you and your special laugh. May God be with the family and give them peace and comfort. Love you dear cousin.
