    To Janet, and to Mark, Chriss, Matt and their families; also to Peggy and Rosemary and their families – So many share with you in your loss and in your many loving memories of Lon. He was a great guy, and the wonderful extended family and throng of friends that surrounded him speaks volumes for his legacy in life. His contributions as a businessman, family man, and outstanding citizen will always be remembered. It is with great regret that I was unable to be with you at calling to help in remembering him, but please know you have been in my thoughts every day since receiving the news. Sending healing love and warmth to you all. Take care!

    To the Wainscott family……Lon was a wonderful classmate of our 1951 graduating class. We enjoyed visiting with him at our monthly Hoops class luncheons and he will be missed. He had stopped attending because of his eyesight, and we were sad that he couldn’t attend anymore. May God continue to comfort you and give you peace.
