It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands

My sincere and deepest condolences to the entire Humbert family on your tragic loss. From the first day I met Sonny when he was about 3 or 4 years old, with his big eyes and blonde spiked hair, (mini Mike) to the last 10 years when he came to the office always gave me a big “mamma” hug. My heart is broken for the Humbert family. There is another Angel in Heaven.

Brenda, So very sorry for your families loss. Know that we are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
I knew your bracelet by I remember the first time that I met you I thought this is a really nice guy . .I’m a very good judge of character and i could tell her that you were a good guy. You didn’t deserve this in your family and friends will keep praying that Justice is served.
You’re forever in my heart. I am very blessed that you were a huge part of my life, I am also very thankful you made me apart of yours too. Thank you for sharing your heart with me. I’ll love you always.
Sonny. Life defiantly ain’t the same. Sorry I wasn’t a good of friend as you were to me. Even they hardships we faced you never let your morals backslide. I am damn fortunate enough to say that I was blessed to be a part of your life. You might of been younger than me but I looked up to you and was proud to say you were my friend. When I found out that I was too fucked up to go to memorial and found out that I was in eulogy. That’s when it really hit me. I mean look it’s a year and a half later and just now saying something. Im sorry that I wasn’t there for you like you were for me. but also thank you for having a good heart. You know us kids are a reflection of our parents. I could only imagine how hard it is for them but they raised a damn good man. Gods in control. Love you sonny. See you on the other side.
