We appreciated the time we did get to spend with Lonnie. He enjoyed coon hunting and went along with Todd and Wyatt. He inspired our son Wyatt to play guitar...Lonnie and Helen have defiantly helped with friendship and ministry, for our desire to have a closer relationship with Jesus and try to be better people. THANK YOU BOTH! Lonnie will be missed here...
