    Uncle Sonny,
    So many fun memories with you- you always took a genuine interest in my life and all of my friends lives. You were always the first to roll up your sleeves to help someone out or work on a project to help others. I will be forever grateful for the love & laughter you have shown me and my family throughout our lives. We love you and miss you already.

    I haven’t known Mr. Kros for very long. I have only worked as the Louisville librarian for a little over a year. The few times that he came in we would visit while I checked out his books. He was a very nice, kind man.I’m so sorry for your loss.
