I saw the obituary in the Albert Lea Tribune and just wanted to express my thoughts and prayers.  I have fond memories of going to the card shop in the garage and trading and buying baseball cards.  My friends and I spent a lot of time and money there from about 1984-1990.  What great memories.  He loved the sports cards and all the joy it brought kids.

Uncle Sonny, A man whose legacy will long be remembered for his kindness, steadfast devotion to his family, dry sense of humor and honest disposition.  The world has lost a treasure but heaven has gained an entrusted man of character.  Rest in Peace Gentle Giant, Rest in Peace.

So sad to hear the news of Luvern's passing.  We enjoyed reconnecting at the recent Sorbo reunions.  We aren't able to return for the gathering but will have family in our thoughts and prayers.
