My condolences to the family at this time of loss. It truly breaks our hearts to lose someone we love. May God provide you the strength needed now and also in the days ahead.

Lonny and family,
Sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. My thoughts and prayers. I remember hearing many stories about your Mom and also her visits when we lived in Atkinson. Hope you can trust the Lord through this difficult time.
