It has been years since we communicated really close, but Lonnie left a lasting impression on my heart. I am so sorry for your loss, but Lonnie is rejoicing today. Blessings sweet ones.

    Lonnie is my neighbor directly across the street and he was one of the most kind hearted person i knew. He greeted me as soon as i moved in a couple of years ago and im grateful i got to know him for those two years. He even bought a baby gift for my daughter born exactly a year ago and i will always remember that. He will be missed and my prayers are with the family. God Bless

    My prayers & thoughts are with the family. We will all really miss him. I will always remember the first time I met him. He was in the service & so handsome in his uniform. So thoughtful, and loved all family. Love you Lonnie.

    So sad to lose Lonnie. There will be a big void in a lot of hearts, especially yours. You two were so close, a special bond. He was very proud of you and loved you so very much. I have many happy, funny memories growing up with him and Don Roy. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.
