James C. Lanier III M.D. M.D.
Suzanne Lanier is my friend. As children we played together and I well remember the strength, warmth, and intelligence surrounding busy Dr. Lanier. He was an exceptional man, father, and husband...my condolences to his loving family.
When I was a child Dr. Lanier was the first doctor to "treat me like a person" and talk to "me". He had an interest in what I was interested in and make me realize that doctors really are people too! I just loved him and thank God he was in my life. God bless your family.
Dr. Lanier was my pediatrician and my siblings during the 50's, 60's and 70's. I remember him as a warm and caring doctor. I was never afraid to go to the doctor. My mother said he would always call you back no matter what time of day. She said she remembers him even coming to our house. He was a dedicated doctor and an integral part of the community. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
To the Wonderful Lanier Family,
I know of no other man who had such a positive impact on so many people as Doc. He set an example for all wh had the honor and pleasure to know him.
Jimmy & Family, I was very sad to learn just yesterday of your Dad's passing. My Helen would always love seeing your parents at OUMC and she would always call Doc Lanier "Her doctor". What a tribute to a career well spent and lives touched. I take solace knowing they are in Heaven and both fully healed of any earthly ailments. My best regards and condolences to your family.
