The call I made to Lonni that Friday was brief but means so much to me..She said " I love you..I love everyone, I love everyone. Also the best I can share first hand is time will ease the hurt and memories will be your gifts from Lonni. Love Jeff and Paul 💙

Fred, I met you and Lonni and Brenda over 44 years ago. Brenda, you were only 6 months old and your folks were struggling teenage parents. I could relate so well as I had been one too and had a daughter. I knew then that you both would be in my life and we’d be friends forever, no matter where we were, how far apart, or how long it was before we could spend time together again. We always did, kept in touch in many different ways, and it felt as if there was no gap of closeness between us during that time apart. Like it had only been the day before when we had been laughing together. That’s what I will remember most, our wild and crazy laughter. Remember the “live” band movie we went to see? . . . Every time we talked on the phone Lonni was always so happy and upbeat about everything in her life and sincerely wanted to know how things were going with me. We’ve all had so many ups and downs in life but having sincere friends like you and Lonni is what made those times bearable. She was one of the kindest, sweetest and warmest people I’ve known and so generous with her love and friendship. For her to not be with all of us anymore at this young age is mind boggling to me. I expected to be visiting the two of you when we were all in our 80’s, you two sitting in your matching rockers ….a Patriots blanket around your shoulders..while we retold stories of all the ‘adventures’ we had had over the years. Well, I will always remember those adventures, every single one, and I will remember Lonni – Always.

Fred and Brenda, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this very sad time with the sudden loss of Lonni ( mom, Gram). She was a very special person and meant the world to so many. Her smile was one in a million and I'll forever remember her laugh! She was so talented and always had something new to show or tell us. Whether it was about something she had made or had done. From sewing years past, growing herbs, vegetables, flowers, huge inside spider plants or a new recipe she found or invented herself!! What a cook she was!! Joined our family at the age of 17 and was so sweet then, people say that in time people may change but not Lonni!! She always remained the same. She loved the life she shared with you Fred, and you were the love of her life. With pride and always joy she loved Brenda, Mike and her grandchildren. Plus that little bundle of joy, a great grandson! We all can recall those beautiful memories of her but now we'll hold them closer in our hearts. For she has entered into Gods heaven never to far away. You will be reminded of her love when you smell that favorite meal of hers, birds singing, flowers, the biggest sunflower you can find or the herbs growing in a garden- she will be there. But mostly remember her love for you all! Sadly missed but never forgotten. Our love and prayers, Karen and Earl

Dear Fred and Brenda and family. We will all miss this beautiful lady. Lonni was such a compassionate soul. As bright as the sunshine that nourished the TREES she found so much beauty in.

Ethel never declined an opportunity to get to spend a day with family and friends and we’re all so lucky to have been left with all those great memories. We miss you and remember you always. All my heart, Lisa And Mark Pantalone

Auntie Lonni~you were a beautiful soul. I loved how you really really saw beauty in the little things. The things that most people are sadly too busy to notice. I loved your passion for gardening and boy could you cook like no other. You were always there for all of us over the years. You and uncle Fred were never apart. The love story that you two lived sets a shining example for all of us. You will forever be missed and always be loved. Uncle Fred & Brenda-we love you and are sending you peace & prayers for strength.
Cassie & Matt
