Please know that I am praying for you, Amy and all the family. God will give you the strength and courage you need I know from experience. Lonnie and John are no doubt having a great time in Heaven. I am thanking for the good memories I have of Lonnie and playing skip-bo. Romans 8:28

Amy, We were so sorry to hear about Lonnie. He was such a quiet and unassuming person. Always a smile and a handshake. We remember fondly attending First Baptist with both of you. I will be out of town on Monday and can't attend the funeral, but just know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Mark and Linda Reding
