Happy Friday To You

Today is a sad day in Michigan. We mourn the passing of a Detroit icon, Sonny Elliott. For those not familiar with him, he was a weatherman that was in the business for more than 60 years. I know that everyday as a child I couldn't wait for the news to come on so I could listen to him deliver the weather as only he could. His humor was iconic, and it always brought some sunshine into even the darkest of days.

Not only was he a weatherman, he was also a veteran of World War II. A fighter pilot during the war, he was also a POW. It has been said that his iconic humor was apparent even back then.

Rest in peace Sonny, I know the sunshine that graces us today is really your warm smile shining down on us! Thank You for all the smiles
