Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I've created it to keep Lonnie's family and many friends updated about his current condition and progress since his tragic accident on May 29, 2010. Get started by reading the introduction to my website, My Story.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write a note in the guestbook. He really enjoys reading them.

Please keep Lonnie in your thoughts and prayers.



Lonnie was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident on Saturday morning, May 29, 2010. He was struck by a driver who crossed over the center line. Lonnie was airlifted to Saint Mary's Medical Center in Duluth, MN and admitted to the Neuro-Trauma Intensive Care Unit. He is in critical condition and was found to have multiple fractures and serious injuries. His recovery will take many months.

The highway patrol who assisted at the accident confirmed that the driver of the car (Micheal Holman) was totally at fault and was driving while under the influence of controlled substances. He was taken into custody and will be arraigned on Tuesday.The toxology report revealed the following substances in Holman's blood: Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Methodone and Clonazepam. 

Many thoughts and prayers continue to be sent Lonnie's way.
