Condolence & Memory Journal

Debbie and I just got home from Costa Rica on Saturday and you have our deepest sympathies. I was always taken by Lon because he reminded me of a cousin in looks and mannerisms but also because of his knowledge. We had mutual respect.. he sdmired me as the trogladite I so closely resembled and I for his many talents, humanity and enthusiasm for his interests such as training greyhounds. He will not be forgotten and I wish we could have talked one last time.

Mr. Lon, a kind, dependable, and loving soul who was dedicated to his family, friends, and of course his community; he was a role model and encourager to many who crossed his path. Both he and Mrs. Tee have helped raise my children and have supported my family for over 30 plus years.
My family and I will miss Mr. Lon dearly, we know he is no longer enduring never -ending pain in his body and are at rest from his earthly labor.
As Mr. Lon was there for us, we will be there for you Mrs. Tee and Rock and will continue to support and pray for you as you endure loss of a special man.
We love you!
Lin, Charles, and children
