Our sincere condolences to the family of Sonny. We had the honor of meeting Mr Cordova a few years ago here In New Mexicowe became friends instantly. A very pleasant man. When he moved to Texas we missed him, but we understood he needed to be closer to his children. Mr Sonny Cordova, your fond memories will always be in our hearts. Rest In Peace
