Dear Hersh Family,
Larry, Al, Nancy, Gigi, Paul, Jamie, Brian, Emily, Julie and Tammy we're sending you all our deepest condolences from the great white north of Canada. Uncle Sonny was always a riot and such a warm presence to be around. Whenever we would visit Chicago or the family came Toronto, Sonny was always the life of the party. He used to joke around with my grandfather all the time which was always a joy to see. I will never forget Sonny's nasty soaked cigars, familiar cologne, his bright smile and flirty personality. It also never hurt when he'd shove a $20 American bill in Michael and my hand when he came to visit either. He will be greatly missed and may his memory bring a sense of joy and comfort when the time is right.
All Our Love, Jordi, David, Maya and baby #2
