Lonnie was a quiet gentle man. His gift was teaching; and he taught his children, his Sunday School Class, and his clients at the Herb House. His other gift was giving to others in need. He especially was fond of giving to the Clean Water Fund through James Robeson. Giving gave him great joy.

As his illness was long, we had time to talk about his Homecoming, walking the mountain tops with Jesus, learning the Wisdom of the Ages. Lon loved his Bible and studied it well. He’s walking with the Lord Jesus now, on the mountain top, learning from his Savior.
