  • My prayers are with the family at this time of reflection. Brother Sorenson lived a life filled with love and dignity and a love of our heavenly father. I saw his love for his family in the reflection of Cole’s eyes as he spoke to me of his grandfather. We offer comfort to Cole here in Virginia as he senses the spirit of Brother Sorenson who now looks over him.

  • Prayers for family . So sorry for the loss. He was a great example for each of you ??

  • He will greatly missed. My condolences and prayers for all of you. Much love, Nancy.

    He was one of those rare larger than life personalities that will be missed. I loved his sense of humor and his generosity. A snapshot of him from past memories are how much he loved each grandchild that came along. There is a picture of him loving baby Chas and looking at the beach in Hawaii that is a favorite. Another memory is how great the invention of the TV remote was. He was a straight shooter with no bull. I love and respect him with all my heart. Prayers and hugs to all the family.

  • My love goes out to the entire family. He was an example to me when I was just developing a testimony and I was having hard times. Just watching the Sorenson family in action was such a blessing to me and my son Jeff.
    Condolences to all.
