    Oh Miranda — when I saw this my heart broke for you. I cannot imagine your grief and loss. Lonnie was a wonderful fellow — he and my son, Derek, used to play hockey together on the same team in Canmore about 20 years ago. Lonnie had such a great game ethic — he loved the game and gave it his all. Words can not heal your heart — cherish & treasure the wonderful memories of him that only a mother holds dear to her heart. Please onpass my heartfelt condolences to everyone who loved & cherished Lonnie — family, friends and acquaintances. My thoughts and prayers are with you — I am praying that you find strength and comfort in the memories you have. In your heart he will remain forever. †RIP Lonnie†
