  1. Lonnie was my neighbor growing up. I loved him, he always made me laugh and he always helped everyone. Just want to let the family know that I am so very sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers.
    He was truly one of a kind.

  2. My late father Bob Lawrence passed in 2001 at the age of 56. If he were alive today, he would say thanks for being one of his best friends for the 30 years they lived in South Heights trying to make it a great place to live for everyone. He would also say thanks for continuing in the same manner for another 20 years after he left. And he would also thank him for always looking in on his wife Bona Lawrence and 3 boys for all those years. Such a dear friend of the family. You will be greatly missed but never be forgotten. God Bless.
