On behalf of the family of Rudolph Joseph Akoneto, we extend our heartfelt thoughts, love, and prayers.  God Blessed our family by allowing our Say Ghee with over 88 years of a fulfilled life.  His humbleness and oh so adventurous character will remain with us a precious memory.  As the last surviving child of our Grandparents, his life gave us so much peace and connection to happy and joyous times at Buzzard Creek.  We accept God's will and together lean on His mercy and promises that He will never leave us or forsake us.  God Bless you Family.

Uncle Lansing has been on my heart lately with thoughts of him at grandparents home, Charles and Sadie Akoneto.  I will always remember Uncle Lansing always so kind and smiling to my brothers Farley (Sonny), Dennis, Gordon (Rusty), and Sister Donna.  We knew he loved us and he would come by house to visit his sister Mary (mom) all the time.  Uncle was a Veteran, serving his Country.  We know He is now resting in Peace with Lord and Savior Christ Savior.  Please pray for the family.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
