Lonnie Lee Lankford
”1945 - 2023”
You just want to hide, go somewhere and escape!
But death is something we all must go through.
I know it's hard when it's someone you loved and knew.
Just know now, he is in a better place.
No more hurt or pain shall he face. It seems unfair, and yes, this is true,
but he is in Heaven now watching over me and you!
God has called him home to rest!!
And he's being well taken care of Because God knows best!
