I only met Sonny once at the studio. It was so much fun! He had the guests sing Happy Birthday to me. I loved talking with him that day. I wish that I had lived closer to really get to know him. He was a dear and a hoot and a veritable encyclopedia of Delta Blues. RIP.

Sonny gladdened our hearts every time we saw him. He opened his home to us, and gave us his friendship over many years. Sonny was generous in so many ways, with his time, his advice, and his ability to promote our music. We are so very grateful for the time we had with him. Sonny, it's King Biscuit Time in the hereafter. We will miss you every day.
