Brother Keys was such a kind person, such a sweet spirit.
He always greeted me warmly when I visited West Mastin Lake, talking about going to a new spot to fish.
He was a dedicated usher, and he always helped out wherever he was needed. I appreciate every kindness he
demonstrated toward my family, especially my mom, and myself. I will truly miss him.

Brother Keys was a nice person who always brought me vegetables from the garden. He always had a kind word to share. He will be missed. I'm keeping the Key family in my prayers.

I remember the love that Lonnie exemplified whenever I saw him. He was always smiling and grinning, I never heard an unkind word from his mouth.
I especially appreciated Lonnie and his daughters barbecuing for the church VBS. The meat was loved by all. May God give the family peace during their grieving process....😇💜🙏

Lonnie was a good and loving friend to our family. I enjoyed going fishing with him and talking with him about everything under the sun. He was so helpful to my son when he was in college and he was always kind to my 89 year old mother, going out of his way to speak to her when he saw her and bring her things from the garden. He taught me a thing or two about barbecue grilling and he was always a supportive, hard worker in everything that he did. As a dedicated church member and usher who gave us a sense of security when he stood his post at the door, with an easy smile and a pleasant, humble spirit, Lonnie will never be forgotten and we offer our deepest condolences to his wife and family as he now Rests in Paradise.

We will miss Brother Lonnie. We have know him many years and will miss his smile that lit the room, his laugh, his serving as an usher at West Mastin Lake Baptist Church, and our fellowship with him. Lonnie was a wonderful man, and will be remembered with love. Truly a great loss for us, but a great gain for Heaven!!! "Precious in the site of the Lord is the death of His Saints" (Psalms 116:15). May God bless the Golria and children and all his family and friends. We love you Lonnie!!!

Love you all so much, Carl & Kimberly Collier
