My deepest and sincere sympathy in the loss of Sunny. He was a GREAT coworker with us at the hotel. He would doing anything for our hotels guests and accomplish the task with professionalism. He would often have his son PJ with him, if he had to return to the hotel and was so happy to have PJ with him. Lots of good memories.
With heartfelt sympathy
