  • Happy 70th Birthday

    Posted on 8/1/17 - by Brenda Floyd Underwood-Proud Gold Star Sister
    On July 29,2017 you would've been 70 years old. The years have flown by in some ways and in other ways it seems like forever since you left. You've never been forgotten for a single day and never will. Everyone who ever knew you still remembers you and misses you. My heart was broken when you were killed and still just as broken. I've been so blessed with two sons and grandsons who are so much like you. They know all about the hero you are and they'll always remember you and through them their children will know you. You will live forever in our hearts. I love and miss you more each day.
    Happy Birthday!

    Today you would have been 70. Although your life was cut short the impact you had on everyone those 19 years is simply the most beautiful feeling ever. You're a story of courage, love, honor and above all you were a respected person anywhere you went. You gave your life up so we all could live free there's nothing any better you're a true American hero along with anyone who served for our country. I'm honored you're my uncle I appreciate more everyday your story. I know when you met God he said well done Lonnie.

    Lonnie, you're always on my mind and in my heart. I find that I miss you more each day as I grow older. Oh how I wish I could see you even for a moment and hug you one more time a bit tighter. You're remembered not only by me but by everyone who ever knew you and you're loved so much. If only we could've known you'd never come home I wander what I'd have said to you. You are remembered by everyone who knew you as a tough guy with a heart of gold. You'll always live in our hearts and you'll always be a young, brave Sky Soldier. I am so proud of you. Thank you for giving your life for our country.
  • 50 Years Ago

    Lonnie, it's been 50 years since that day when our family was changed forever. Since then mother and daddy plus so many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends have joined you in Heaven. I thought the grief of losing you would last forever and it has seemed forever but our tears have dried. After watching so many of the veterans who did come home suffer from PTSD, Agent Orange, Cancer and many other after effects of the war, I know in my heart you have been at peace with your role in Vietnam. I know that you have been spared all of these horrible things that plague your friends, I think of you so often when I look at my own sons and their families and I wonder what your family would've looked like. I think of being retired and wonder what you would be retired from. I look at your toy Army trucks and I think you had decided to be a soldier when you were just a little boy. You were a brave soldier and one that I will always be proud of. Through you I have come to appreciate all of our veterans in a way that I never could have without you. I've met so many people I would never have met without you. Your character, honesty, integrity and loyalty have been words that your friends continue to use when remembering you. You have set the example for your nieces and nephews. Lonnie, I will never forget you and the sacrifice you made for our family and country. I will always see you, hear you and love you. I will honor you and your memory as long as I live and one day I'll join you and all of our family and friends in Heaven. Someday I hope I can come up with the words to express how much you meant to me and how much I miss you. Rest In Peace Sky Soldier.
