    I would like to offer the family our deepest and most sincere condolences. I pray that the many happy memories of Lonnie’s life with all of you will, with time, overcome the sadness and pain that have accompanied you all. Lonnie, Sandy, and the entire family welcomed my family into theirs many years ago, I particularly remember them spending time with my kids. Lonnie was a well-respected friend to all. I will always remember times spent at the Jones house. Please be assured of my prayers. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
