I was so shocked to hear about Sonny's passing. My best memory is from probably 100 years ago: I was just a little girl and Sonny bought a brand new suede jacket. I couldn't keep my hands offs! I thought it was so nice and snuggly like a beautiful brown bear. Mom would tell me not to touch his jacket but Sonny always laughed and said I could feel it any time I wanted. That's my best memory. Brenda, my thoughts and prayers are with you always.

Brenda, Carol and I were very saddened to hear about Clarence. Clarence and I had some good times together in the FBI Tech. Section back in the late 1950's. Although I have not seen Clarence in many years, I have fond memories of our past friendship. Carmine

I was saddened to read of the passing of "Lud". For many years, being a Bookbinder, I bound Many of His Journals that he would bring into the shop. He was a Great Customer of Mine. An avid CAPS Fan. I'm very sorry. Patrick Kirby
