I met Lonnie through my friend Marty and her mom Cookie. I just found out he passed. He was a really nice fella. Very generous. Very kind. Wish I had a way to contact them.

So sorry to hear about Lonnie. He was a fellow classmate of mine at St Peter and Paul. We had been keeping in touch thru Facebook. May he rest in peace.

It's been a week and one day since you went to heaven. Sometimes the grief can be overwhelming but all the memories are helping me to get through. You are so loved and so missed. I know that one day we will be together again.

I love and miss you,

Being a high school classmate of Lonnie's, I remember his serious and humorous side of Lonnie. My sympathy to all of you.

I still can't believe that you are really gone. I miss you and love you so much. I hope you are having a hamburger and giant piece of chocolate cake in Heaven. Thank you for always being there for us.
