He took out my tonsils when I was 8,or 9, I was scared and had to stay for the 1st, time overnight in the hospital alone, He came and sat with me and I felt divine peace which I later came to understand was an anointing of the Lord...I have though about him, many times over the yrs. and was well pleased to learn he did missionary work. I believe He prayed for me in the hospital and I never forgot His kindness and peace as I am 53 now and this is belated for just learned he went home in March...for reasons will keep my name a secret...He was my doc and a child's angel at the time...

Dear Lane family: I met your dad as a young nurse at St. Edwards School of Nursing. I remember him as such a wonderful "gentle" man! He was always patient, kind, and respectful of his patients and the staff he interacted with. He was someone who consistently modeled a demeanor of confidence mixed with a keen intellect and accomplished surgical skill. Please know that he was held in great esteem and each person was better for knowing him, even if the meeting was as superficial as assisting him with a procedure. You are blessed to call him "family".

P.S. Now I'm retired, but after all these years I still recall Dr. Lane as special!

Chuck, I got to see your dad at Methodist after we moved Mother there in early Dec. She moved in just 2 doors from his room. I had a nice conversation with him last month in the dining room, and his smile was just as I remembered it. So sorry for your loss. I hope you have many good memories to hold dear. With sympathy to your entire family, Ellen Hornberger Masterson

I was saddened by the loss of Dr Lane! I've known him a long time! It started with my Mother(Margaret Harmon)who worked for him 18yrs. He was the nicest man to her and even when he went on vacations he always brought her a flower or two of whatever she was collecting! He would tell me how much he missed her at work. I saw him alot,because i work at a hospital! And now i know he is visiting with her again..talking flowers,etc! Such a sweet man!!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. Dr. Charles Lane was my doctor for many years. I thought the world of him. He was always so kind and gracious when I visited him as a patient. He did surgery on me twice. The day I took him a gift of a golfer he had just lost his mother.

I was sad to read of Dr. Lane's passing. He was my ear doctor during my childhood years. I had chronic ear problems, and I believe that I have my hearing today because of him. My mother is a resident at Methodist Nursing Home and so when visiting her I often saw Dr. Lane in the dining room. I shared w/him one day that he was my ear doctor when I was a young girl, and I'll always remember the smile he gave me! My thoughts and prayers to his family at this time.

Dear Chuck, Carol and Sherard,
I was saddened to learn of your Dad's passing. I know watching the slow decline was hard, but losing him completely is still so painful. Of course, your faith tells you that HE is much better off, yet we still grieve for our loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. He was a kind and compassionate man who has left the world a better place. May God wrap you all in comfort.

Saddened to hear of Dr. Charles passing; he meant so much to his Hattiesburg family - the Vances, Watts, Erwins, Lanes, and others who were always so proud of him and loved his visits. May the family be comforted in knowing that his life of service was so well lived. Patricia Watts Pope great niece

Chuck and Carol, seeing the photo gallery here reminds me of your lovely family and the "Wolfe Lane years". . .so many good memories of your Mom and mine chatting over their coffee mugs while we waited for Marilyn on Mom's car pool days, the Path, playing kick the can. . .we were blessed with great childhood memories and great parents. Maybe the mansions that the Lord has prepared for them are in the same neighborhood. . .Blessings, Tom and Judy (Call) Balla
