Not sure what to say?

Sue, Bonnie & Butch -- I have so enjoyed reading everyone's comments -- Your Dad was such an important part of my life - I will miss him - Dad's (Norm) birthday is today and I know they are having a highball, laughing and telling stories. Laughter is what I take with me always. So many wonderful memories -- I remember the laughter together....the brothers and family... The Sorensen's taught us to laugh at ourselves and at each other.
Sadly, it is the end of an era...we'll never...

Dear Bonnie, Butch and Sue
Please accept my condolences on the death of your father. I have so many memories of him, your mother, his brothers and sisters and their mother.
For so many years they had a lot of fun especially those Christmas Eve parties on Wainlow Avenue.
I was very fond of your dad and hope all his years were as good as they could be.
Thinking of him, your mom and all of you today. You are in my prayers.

Sue, Bonnie & Butchie ..
I'm sorry to hear of Ray's passing; a final chapter to a the large Danish Sorenson clan. I remember Ray at our Dad's funeral service a few years back .. it was good to see him and for me, was very moving having him there.. it meant alot to our family.
As I write I can see Norm and Ray at their 66 station in Waukegan, as a kid, it felt 'so cool' to visit them.
I'm sorry for you loss & celebrate your Dad's long life filled with the love of...

Dear Sue, Bonnie, and Ray, I remember the good times, the laughter, snowmobile rides, fishing and great conversation in the "Shop". I'm sure Dad will be filling the hearts of his friends with stories and tall tales as he joins them on an everlasting journey. Of course, Gladys is there waiting with great food and a welcoming hug and kiss. (Maybe even a cocktail. I bet they have wine.) So many good memories from a caring and wonderful Husband, Dad and Grandpa. Be sad, but remember...

Thanks to all who remember my Dad. He was an amazing guy who ran Da Station.
I will miss him, but I'm glad he now is comfortable.
He lived 99% awake and well, so only a few weeks not so well.
He gave us lots to talk about and where else would you take your car?

Bonnie, Ray, & Sue
I was so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He was such a big part of my younger life. I still remember when they had the station downtown and we would go across the street to the Y for lunch. I as a young guy, would keep the station open for them when they went fishing in Canada. Your mom Gladys would stop in daily to take care of the books. I loved them both.
My partner of 25 years, Bob Epker and I patterned our Texaco Station in copy of you dad's and...

My sincere sympathy to the family. I grew up in Waukegan, my father was Nishan Pilibosian and I believe he knows your family. I wonder if you are any relation to Eric Sorenson, he ran the business with his father. Please if possible have him contact me if this is possible. Email address roxana4girls@sbcglobal.net. Thank you

Ray, I was saddened to read about your dad's passing. I know you had many great times with him over the years, and hopefully those memeories will provide you comfort. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

So sorry to hear about Ray . Back in the 60's I did business with Ray and Norm and it was always a pleasure to have great people like the Sorensen brothers to work with .
