My Uncle Lonnie has been in my life since my birth. He was a wonderful and kind man whom I am so happy for. I have so many fond memories of him coming over for Christmas dinner when Aunt Pat had to work and then he fell asleep after the meal…hahahaha. He tried to show me how to use a bow and arrow which was eventful. I loved knowing when he was coming to my home to visit, it was a treat. He was always very loving and caring to me. I got to speak to him about three weeks or so on the phone and it was a wonderful conversation. He told me he loved me and I said the same and he ended the conversation with saying “so long.” My nanny Elva (Uncle Lonnie’s mom) would always end a conversation that way and I feel blessed he did with me. I know he is at peace and no longer in pain and he is in some place along with nanny chatting. I will and do dearly miss mu Uncle Lonnie and will love him forever. Natasha Anderson (Claridge).
