Condolence: The shock of your passing, so soon after your brother, Bruno, left us feeling very sad! You, Bruno and Rosalie were such a support system for all of us in the jackson educatioal family! You were so kind to both of us all during our long careers in Jackson. Rest in peace!

Condolence: Please, not again. My first words as I responded to my Daughter’s words: “Uncle Sonny passed away Mom”. Just 2 weeks after his brother (Bruno) died, it does not seem possible, but, with a very heavy heart, I have to say, it’s true, he too is gone. 2 Uncles who were very close gone in 2 weeks. My Moms 2 younger brothers. The two men that I made an Uncle. Anyone that knows Uncle Sonny knows he was everyone’s Uncle. A man you can call any time of the day, any time of the night, and he fixed it, no matter what, he made it better. He would walk over to my house to see my Mom, it didn’t matter when, “Are you makin’ coffee” he would say, always having a piece of cake too. I can still see him walking up the driveway, the cold, the heat, the rain, sleet or snow didn’t stop him. When I was little and aggravated my Mom, my Dad would be working and my Mom would say “Just wait till your Uncle gets here”....His trips with Aunt Rosalie to AC would always end in Pastrami sandwiches for us which he took pride in bringing home and setting them in our fridge. In the earlier years he and Aunt Rosalie always had Thanksgiving (his Birthday time) and New Years at their house, it was something we all looked forward to...and there he was with his vacuum 2 o’clock in the morning picking up the confetti he let us kids throw. I never a day in my life saw him cry, until the both of us were walking through a hospital vestibule and they were filming an ad for children with cancer and I looked at him and he at me, and we burst into tears. So soft hearted, treated his nieces and nephews as if they were his own children, always said “so long”, kissed you on the forehead and ended it with “Unk loves you...I can truly say, I’m heartbroken. “I love you too Uncle Sonny,” take care of everyone up there with you, until we meet again.

Condolence: Dear Uncle Sonny, You have, along with Uncle Bruno, have blessed me with so many wonderful memories from childhood through adulthood. I was extremely lucky to have you as an Uncle. You were the Patriarch! You made it work! You were the cohesive piece. You loved all of us unconditionally. I will hold dear to my heart the amazing Thanksgivings and New Years Eves. As my children grow, I always remind them where I came from and all the special memories and moments frozen in time in the basement of your home. Thank you Unk. Rest in peace with all those who have passed before you.
