My deepest sympathy to Ruth (Mom), Hiedi, and Dave. Hiedi is one of my best friends and I have spent alot of time with this wonderful family and know how GOOD of a man Lonnie was. I have great memories of Hiedi and I hitting the Moose everyday after school to see Lonnie and Ruth, get our pop and hit the pool table! I love you guys, he is in a much better place than we are and most importantly... he is not suffering anymore. God Bless.
