When you messaged me my heart sunk. He was a great guy and would help anyone. He will be missed, that's for sure.

RIP my friend!

Sadness.  He was on my list of "must meet" people.  His influence on the bus community goes further than he will ever know...

My condolences to his family, and you and his other friends. I will always think of you, Sonnie, and Mike, while sitting around a busin' campfire, for the help you guys gave Deb and I while on the road. Our bus community has lost a great one. RIP Sonnie!

I have a deep hole inside my heart as Sonnie truly was one of those people you looked up to for guidance, friendship and compassion.  Dam, I miss you buddy, just talked to you last week and had no idea that would be the last time.  Safe journey to be with Patti, see you again one day.

Sonnie was a real Bus Nut, not asking for anything but always ready to give a helping hand.  We lost one of the good ones.

Life is short he was fine last week laughing and joking really happy with his new life, his stent he got about 7 or 8 years back was giving him problems but he thought the new medications would cure it.

When Mike gets more details he will let us know he is headed for TX to pickup the bus and Sonnies belongings,it tough on Mike and Brenda so I am not bothering them with phone calls he will let me know

So sorry to hear this! Wow it's hard to comprehend him being gone. But as sad as it is he can now be with Patti again.
RIP Sonny!
