As I Sit in Heaven As I sit in Heaven And watch you everyday I try to let you know with signs I never went away I hear you when you’re laughing And watch you as you sleep I even place my arms around you To calm you as you weep I see you wish the days away Begging to have me home So I try to send you signs So you know you are not alone Don’t feel guilty that you have Life that was denied to me Heaven is truly beautiful Just you wait and see So live your life, laugh again Enjoy yourself, be free Then I know with every breath you take You’ll be taking one for me….

    Please accept my heart felt condolence. Lonnie was my childhood neighbor and friend, you could always see him smiling and laughing a mile away. Lonnie was a fun loving kid and loved his family. Annette, Lonnie and Tony would race home everyday from school to eat their homemade cookies or brownies waiting in the kitchen upon arrival that their mom cooked for their after school treat. I myself would enjoyed Janice daily home made treats as well as I pretty much stop by as often as I could. Anette and Lonnie were instrumental in teaching me how to ride a motorcycle. We would ride our motorcycles out at their new house and discovered under ground tunnels behind the fence that said, Federal property, kids will be kids and explore any way! I got goosebumps thinking of Lonnie joining his dad and Annette. Janice it seems unfair to me that you experienced the loss twice, I am so sorry for the pain and loss.

    My heartfelt condolences. I have known Lonnie for 15 years. Although I met Lonnie professionally, he became a trusted friend; as he was to countless others. Lonnie will be missed by all; the worldis a better place because of him.
