    Haven’t seen Lonnie since high school but have often longed to find him. Well the lord found him for me. I am so sorry it happened this way but I am happy to know that I will be able to see my old friend again one day. I knew he had to turn out to be a really good guy. He was a good guy then. I will pray for your family.
