A kind, soft spoken "GENTLEMAN", who I knew for so many years as a kid growing up , being friends of Warren & Gerald. Thanks Lonnie, for the friendship during those years--I will never forget the times on Prospect Avenue!!! RIP

Lonnie’s quiet, laid back, friendly demeanor provided a wonderful atmosphere when you were in his presence. His knowledge of the Bible and input in Sunday School was highly valued. Definitely knew the way Home!! Heartfelt sympathy to Carolyn and the family .

Lonnie, I will never forget your wonderful scrambled eggs with cheese on Sunday mornings when I would spend the night with Lisa. You were always nice to me and I will miss you. Thank you for letting me stay over on those nights with Lisa. God bless you and have a safe trip home. We will see you in Heaven one day soon. Your loving sister-in-law.

Mr. Freeman, you graced my front yard bench with a brief rest on your walks with Jodi. I will miss seeing you sitting under my maple tree. Rest in peace, neighbor.
