  • You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of Sonny. I remember growing up and listening to Sonny play music and act funny at Bobby Buffin's "County Place". How he loved music and his family. He will truly be missed, but has left a legacy in his automotive repair business in Frankfort. He was the best. God Bless Jim Woolums
