Dear Ronn and Donna,

I am writing for several family members to let you know how sad we
were to hear about the loss of Uncle Lonnie.
It had been way too long since any of us had been in contact with him.
Aunt Mary Lou called to let my Mom know.

Your Aunt Vera is 90 years old and still lives in her own home. A
niece lives with her. She’s doing well but has begun to have balance
problems. Your Dad’s half brother, W.O. or William, passed away in
2002. Our sister Janice passed away from leukemia in 2005. My brother,
Tom and his wife, live in St. Joseph, MO, like my Mom. I live here
with my husband and my little brother, Rod, lives here with his wife.
My second oldest brother, Darwin and his wife live in Raytown, MO.

We just wanted you to know that we were sadden by the news and wanted
to send our love and sympathy.

Your cousin,
Deanna Losson

PS: For your records:
William Othar Johnson and Vera Johnson
Tom(we call him Preston) and Penny Johnson
Darwin and Colleen Johnson

Ronn and Donna,

I just heard from Brad Bransky, Ronn, of your Father’s passing. I know how much you cared for him and witnessed the patient help you gave him with his health needs. Nancy and I are sorry that we missed the services. Our sympathy is with you.

Your friends,

Gaylord and Nancy Richardson

Dear Ron and Donna,

Carol and I are feeling the loss of your father. Carol got to meet him when
we made a trip to Missouri and he and you
mom were at Dads.

I remember the day they were married and how proud they were at your birth.

I loved them both.

May God be with them and you and Donna.

Oh Lonnie… I am so happy that you embraced my as part of your ‘family’. Thank you for the laughs, and phone calls after I left KS. I will never forget you telling me to watch out for the rattle snakes in Tucson. Knowing you and Pauline are together again gives comfort. My love goes out to Ronn and Donna at this time. -Nate
