    Sonny and Darlene were neighbors of mine and my former husband on 27th Street. We sold our house in 2013, but I visited with them one last time in 2013. Sonny always had a smile and so welcoming to Oak Island. My sincere condolences are heartfelt to Darlene, the children and grandchildren. Lavonda Crocker (Hogg)
