Ya I got luc's too. Thanks for asking. 💝
Sonny was a great guy. It's too bad he had such a terrorist for a niece. Arlene Mulley abused his trust and spread lies about her sister Lucille throughout the family and used a spoof card to make harassing phone calls to Sonny when he was sick. I hope she didn't get any kind of inheritance. She definitely does not deserve it if she did.
