Dear Gurcharan, Willy, Jimmy:
Please know that we think of Sonny often. I'II always remember Sonny's organizational skills in getting everyone together in the spire of a moment, for a road hockey game or pick up basketball game.
The world is a much better place because of Sonny's time here. Take care Darshan.
Dan :)
I was thinking about Heinsburg and the wonderful people that passed through the school. I remember Sonny when he was just a small boy with that deep voice. His father was my teacher and Gurcharn was so proud of Sonny and Willy. Im sorry we didn't meet, but one day we will. Sincere Condolences to the Anand family from a good friend.
It's been a little while now and just want you to know I will always remember your Sonny. He was that kind of special person. To his beloved family. I hope in your pain you recognize how fortunate you were to have him and how he loved you.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Hands down the best person I came across in my life.
I was greatly saddened to hear of Sonny's passing. I knew Sonny from highschool and last saw him at his home in Edmonton for an extention of our 10 year highschool reunion. I was fortunate enough to meet his beautiful wife and lovely family. My deepest condolences to you all.

Sonny was one of those individuals that everyone could not help but like. So dynamic, with a fantastic sence of humor. He was never afraid to put himself "out there" and always made everyone laugh. He had an energy that was hard to descibe: accepting, warm, welcoming. It was no surprise that he became a doctor.

Anytime I've opened my highschool year book over the years, I couldn't help but laugh at some of those picture of Sonny and have absolute admiration for his sence of humor, his spirit and the way he made people feel.

I know Sonny came to this world to make a difference. . . and he did.

Happy Trails my dear friend,
. . until we met again.
To the Anand Family, I extend my most heartfelt condolences.

Sonny was an inspiration to all who met him. He had a talent for cheering people up and making them laugh. He always knew just what to say to brighten one's spirit. It is fitting that he chose psychiatry as his speciality, he was born to counsel. I am sure he made a tremendous impact on his patients.

I met Sonny in high school and knew him mainly through his brother Willy. I have many fond memories of simply just hanging out, and laughing. Later, I had the good fortune of attending the same medical school with Sonny (he was two years my senior). I especially remember how he would use his comedic words of wisdom to build me up when I was stressed or disheartened during my clerkship. He was a mentor like no other, incredibly knowledgable, kind, and understanding with a flair for the lighter side of life.

To the entire Anand family, please accept my most sincere sympathies. I wish you peace and strength at this challenging time.
Dear Gurdarshan and family.
I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear passing of Sonny. He was one of my bright students in my Calculus Class in the Grande Prairie Regional College, Grande Prairie AB in the academic year 1987 – 88 – when he was about to get into Med School.
Sonny had health difficulties – but when I unexpectedly met him in Royal Alex Hospital in Edmonton he was in surprisingly good spirits.
I do not know how but I found myself thinking of the Anand family few days ago – Gurcharan, Sonny, Willy, Jimmy, and yourself in Grande Prairie setting, and the thought would come back to me again and again. And, I heard the sad news yesterday (Sat Jan 19, 2013 – late, of course).
Sonny was too young to leave. We pray for peace for him.
It is very hard for Navdeep and the children also to cope up with the loss. You are also in our thoughts.
Our condolences and prayers for the whole family.
Subhash, Medha Karnik and Family, Grande Prairie AB
Many condolences to the Anand family for your loss of Sonny a person I could never forgot even after all these years. I will always remember running into Sonny at U of A and telling me how he was getting through med school with such confidence and humor (sequestering himself in his apartment for 2 days to study). In high school his positive outlook, humor along with his energy was envious by so many that had the privilege to have known him.

It seems like a very short time ago that Sonny and Chris were inseperable preschoolers. They would be at one of our trailers or finding interesting things to do outside, like licking the frost on the propane tank (that didn't end well). Sonny was like one of our family. I always looked forward to his big smile and his deep-voiced, "Hello, Mrs Thomson". Such a delightful, polite little fellow!
A very grown-up Dr. Anand came to Heinsburg School a few years ago to show his wife where he started school. He was as happy to find his old Gr.1 teacher still there as I was to see one of my favorite students again. He really hadn't changed much -well he was a lot taller, but other than that, he was still the same polite deep-voiced Sonny that I had known. And his smile was just as dazzling!
My deepest condolences got out to Sonny's family. May you find strength to bear this terrible loss. And may your memories of an outstanding young man bring you comfort.
With love,
Connie Thomson
