February 01, 2013
"now the lights are going out, along the blvd. memories come rushing back & it makes it pretty hard" another sad milestone...still can't believe you aren't here to see 49. This world seems smaller & less bright without you in it.
February 01, 2013
Jani was apart of my teen years he's music would forever shape me . When I had a bad day at school or even with a relationship I would get my cassettes out of warrant and sit in my room and listen for hours. I do that now when I get upset I play his music . He was a gifted artist that in so many ways helped many through his music. I will never forget Jani the hometown boy that made it in the music world. To u jani u will always be a part of my life and I will always be a fan of ur wonderful music. We miss u and loved u so very much . U will live on through your family and fans miss u so much jani I have been your fan since you started and as I get older I still listen to your music everyday on the way to classes and driving anywhere. Much love and admiration for a wonderful person who shined as bright as the stars in the sky

i played out in the 80s as well in a band from conn, we only dreamed of getting where u guys went and get there u did. your lead vocals were awesome your look front man presence even choreography at times was unsurpassed.we all admired you dearly jani.I recently watched all your videos from the beginning of your career till near the end.Everybody thinks that us rock stars always look and sound the same forever but in reality thats almost impossible its only what we wish it could be.none of that matters tho because get there u did and you will be locked up in hair band history forever as a incredible front man.Its hard to see are heroes struggle yet in are minds we only see you at your pinacle days no matter what we watch or hear because we know you were the best and damn well deserve it! your biggest fan.

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
? Dr. Seuss

It's not fair that you are gone from this World far before your time. I know I can not change what happened and that does make me so very sad. To know that for now, the world has had to let you go. But I will continue to smile for the past 22 years that you have been a part of my life. Thank you for being our "Song & Dance Man"

RIP Jani. Gone far too soon! You will never be forgotten.
March 11, 2012
From the moment I knew the name "Jani Lane", the man lit up my life with his talent, his passion, and his smile. His experiences and written advice have served as a guiding light for me in my own pursuit of rock and roll, and for that, I will be forever greatful. Though I never had the chance to meet my idol, I have and always will believe that he "got" me in a way few do. Thank you, family and friends, for sharing someone so dear and wonderful with the world. And to Jani, thank you, for everything.
March 11, 2012
See you on the other side man! You were my favorite singer,it was fun meeting you every year and talking with you and it was like a dream see ya !
March 11, 2012
I thought I signed the "Guest Book", but after looking at 926 entries, I had not. I know I signed in on Eric's page.
To all the survivors of Jani's: it was a sad day to hear the news of his passing! My heartfelt sympathy to ALL of the "Oswald family"!!
Jani will long be remembered for his music...he certainly left his mark on this world!
March 11, 2012
you will forever be in our hearts Jani, thank you so much for all the beautiful music you gave us, RIP my friend.
March 11, 2012
Rest in peace - heaven isn't to far away.
March 11, 2012
I had the honor of meeting And talking with Jani at many a show over the years. He was a great talent who truly showed he appreciated his fans. A rare find. I listen to his music everyday and still can't believe he is gone. I guess God needed this angel to make some beautiful music for him and one day we will hear it again.
March 11, 2012
It's still so hard to believe that you are gone. To know that I'll never hear your voice other than on a recording makes me so sad. You still had so much left to give. The world lost a great talent 7 months ago, and your family and friends lost an amazing soul. I know you are finally at peace.
March 11, 2012
Rest In Peace Mr. Jani Lane [*] I love you and I always will
March 11, 2012
Maybe you're no longer here, but your music and your charisma will live forever ... I regret that I will could never see you in concert ... You´re rockin´ in heaven right now...R.I.P

the first time i heard your voice, warrant became one of my favourites bands. im still very young and didnt have the oportunity to hear about you before. but during the latest years, which are being the hardest in my life, it was your voice and your songs that lighted me a candle and gave me the energy to live every day, every hard moment. and now i want to light a candle for you and hold it for the rest of my life. ive never seen you but i promise i will always enjoy your videos, watching that perfect smile, and dreaming thanks to your magical voice. and the last thing id like to tell you is that i felt terribly lonely when i knew you had left this world. but now i can smile, cause you already knew thar heaven is not too far away, and im sure you are resting in peace there. i will
miss you a
lot. god bless your family and friends. love you, Jani, forever! in the name of Spain!

September 20, 2011
without a doubt one of the greatest frontmen I have ever had the pleasure of seeing perform live. I was only 16 when I saw him live in Sydney Australia (back in 92) & it was the first real concert I had ever attended & still to this day & after many other concerts & seeing many other frontmen perform he always has & always will remain as one of the best I have seen without a doubt. His ability to entertain was outstanding & he surely will be missed & never forgotten. RIP JANI LANE - ONE OF THE BEST FRONTMEN EVER. WARRANT NEVER WERE & NEVER WILL BE THE SAME AGAIN.
September 19, 2011
Sorry we never got to meet, all the paths in the world and ours never crossed. I hung out in alot of places you were but never was lucky enough to get to meet you! You will be missed!My wife and I will keep rockin to the awsome music you've given us!
September 19, 2011
Jani was such a great talent of many things...for me the music he's written and sung are the most special.They have got me through alot of dark times growing up and is now a source of INSPERATION. His music fills me with so much fun and happiness and has for all these years and will continue to fill my fond memories and my heart forever! R.I.P Jani. Thanks for the music!!
September 19, 2011
Jani, you were such a talented and beautiful man. Your voice and music took me through my teenage years. Such a talent that is gone too soon! You are sadly missed. Thoughts with your daughters, family, and friends.
September 17, 2011
Jani was simply remarkable.. from the moment he introduced himself to me I felt that to be true.. When I heard him perform the first time I was a believer! He was so genuinely kind, caring, funny.. He was also phenomenally talented! In a world full of egos, Jani stood out as charmingly humble.. How could you not love him? And I did. We all did. Jani was welcomed into our hearts as much for the wonderful person he was as for the soul-moving lyrics/music he wrote and the fantastic voice he possessed. He was the kind of guy who genuinely wanted to do good things for other people. He was always happy to make someone else happy. Losing him left an void in a lot of lives. There will never be another Jani Lane.. For those of us whose lives he touched, we will miss him every day for the rest of our lives. He was and always will be someone who inspired us and made us feel good, who helped us when we were feeling down and made our good times that much better. He gave us great memories and made us smile. Jani was a part of all of us and when he left us, he left a gaping hole in our hearts. I hope Jani knew how very much he was loved. And if he didn't, I hope that he can hear it or feel it now. He was just a wonderful human being, may he now rest in peace. May all his worries now be gone and may he feel nothing more than the love of all who care for him. To Jani's family, his brother and sisters, and his daughters, Taylar and Maddy, I send my condolences and much love and prayers. It is a very hard thing to lose someone you love so dearly. It is a difficult thing to go through and I wish all of you strength and love throughout the process of grieving for Jani. Know that it may take a long time but eventually it will get easier. And when the time comes all the wonderful memories he has left for you will be a beautiful source of comfort.
With Love to All of You,
Lanna

There is not enough words to say about a change maker, and brother you are a change maker.You did'nt wait for things to come to you, you made them happen. I'm so proud of what you have accomplished, and I enjoyed and still enjoy the music you created. I will listen and get chill bumbs till the day I die. RIP BRO!!!
September 15, 2011
Jani Lane was the nicest and coolest musicians that I have ever met. Always took the time to talk with you, sign an autograph and take a photo with you. He was never in a rush and genuinely cared about his fans. His songs will stand the test of time and he will not be forgotten. I saw Warrant play at the Akron Agora so many times I cant even remember and every time I hungout backstage and drank with the whole band. Last time I saw Jani was at the HiFi Club in Lakewood, Ohio two years ago and he remembered me from 20 years ago! Jani you were the coolest ever! Thanks for the good times, the memories, and the great songs that you will be remembered by. You are in a much better now. See you soon brother cause Heaven is never too far away. God Bless You and your family, you will be greatly missed! Dave Szabo-Strongsville, Ohio
September 15, 2011
Jani was and still is the most phenomenal singer, songwriter, and person this world has ever been blessed with. My thoughts, prayers, and love go out to his incredible family. Jani has always been the one person to inspire me so much in my life not only with my music, but as a person as well. His music and his presence has gotten me through the good times and the bad and will forever continue to do so. I can't remember a time when I was listening to him and it didn't make me smile. You will forever and always be in our hearts through you're spirit and the music you have given us. Missing you every minute! Love you so much Jani!
September 15, 2011

Jani you are such a beautiful person and a great musician. I feel honored to have met you and you were always kind enough to pose for a picture. May you now rock with the best of them. You will always live on as long as we all listen to your music and think of you everyday.
September 15, 2011
Jani Lane is and always will be special to me and my family. So many great memories that involve Jani Lane. We have traveled to many different states to enjoy listening to you do what you did best, sing. We spend many evenings just riding around listen to your music. My four year old daughter just loves you and your music. She is and always will be a Jani Lane fan! You were amazing...still are. Thanks for all of the great times and memories that will never be forgotten. Much love to you Jani Lane!!!! Thoughts and prayers go out to all of your family!
September 15, 2011
I was a HUGE fan and was so saddened and shocked to hear of his passing. May you find comfort in the memories you all shared. God Bless.


GOD’S GARDEN
God looked around his garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “peace be thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you
The day god called you home
September 15, 2011
The world has lost a great voice and songwriter and he will be missed by so many people. To his family, you are in my prayers. Knowing how much we as fans loved him we can hardly know your loss. Know that he is looking down on us all.

The World has lost another Great singer/songwriter way to soon! Warrant was one of my favorite bands! I always thought this fine, blonde haired, beautiful blue eyed young man hung the moon! I got to meet Jani in Dallas once, and just fell in Love! I pray for his two daughters every day! I hope they know how special their daddy was to not only them, but also the rest of the world! R.I.P. Jani!
September 11, 2011
Jani's Voice soared the airwaves like no other. His voice has strength not many of the greats of his time could do.
A voice that definitely has colored the Earth with much emotions and touched many many lives.
You will always be special Jani, Coz there wont be "no other".
You will be dearly missed here, But im sure you are at a better place.
Heaven isn't too far away.

September 04, 2011
A depressing rainy Labor Day in Ohio brought me to this site, after spending several hours watching videos, reading about, and listening to the life and times of Jani Lane. I grew up in the rival football town of Kent about 3 miles from where Jani grew up. Older siblings knew him and when he came on the scene with Down Boys, all us “little” girls just about died, thinking of our brush with fame as he played drums in the garages and basements of our older friends and families.
His lyrics were a cut above all other glam metal songs of the 80’s….they had a deepness that resonated with many of us, cutting through the bs that lots of songs from that era contain. And he could kick out a hit when he had to -waa laa Cherry Pie.
May his energy forever flow through his daughters, friends, and family and give them peace.
September 04, 2011
RIP Jani, so sad xxx
September 04, 2011
Words can not even begin to express the loss and sadness I and so many others feel. I still can't believe it, I don't want to believe it.
Thank you Jani for sharing your incredible gift with the world, I can only imagine what you had left to grace us with.
To the family my heart aches for you, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Treasure the memories always.
To Taylar and Madison, your Dad loved you so very much, you could see it all over his face in pictures.

There will never be another Jani "John Patrick Oswald" Lane .....thank you God for blessing us with him for a short time.

Forever and always in our heart Jani "John Patrick Oswald" Lane

My candle will always be burning for you Jani <3 Rock it out in Heaven darlin. <3 We will miss you so much.. ;,(
September 03, 2011
Your music was the soundtrack of my life through good times and bad. Meeting you was a big thrill for me, and at the time my soon to be wife. You were very kind and gracious with your time, humbling. I went to see you anytime you played near here and sometimes when you were far away. You were by far one of the best songwriters ever, and I have been saying that for twenty years. You inspire me to write and become a better musician. I was always in your corner, and I wish you would have gotten the respect you deserved all the time. I hope you know how much you affected everyone you touched, and how much you will be missed. It still doesn't seem real. I will see you again someday my friend. My heart goes out to your family. God Bless you.
September 03, 2011
I have loved you since I was 10yrs. old. I still can't believe you are gone. I am praying for all of your family and your babies ecspecially. I will always love you and you never had to be Superman, all you had to be was you. I wish I had been able to see you in concert, sadly I didn't. May you rest in peace, you were a beautiful man, both inside and out. R.I.P. Jani Lane (Heaven is now embracing you I know) <3 All my love, Melissa <3

You were a always underrated by those who didn't listen to you. To those of us who listened to you, you are underrated but only because we cannot rate you high enough.

You will always be remembered by your legacy, and that speaks volumes. Keep smiling jl

August 24, 2011
My heart broke when I learned you were gone. I grieved for your family left behind..and for us fans who will never hear your beautiful voice again. I got angry with myself for missing your show several years back in Massilon... and smiled thru tears remembering the last time I saw you in New Orleans. You were right - I have been in Ohio almost 11 years -- and I do love it! (I still bleed purple and gold though ha ha ha) You were one in a million and I am so grateful for the nights I got to enjoy your music live... the conversations we shared... and the many, many memories you had no idea your music gave me. I never said thank you.....
To Jani's family... he was wonderful. One of the most considerate and kind gentlemen I ever had the pleasure of meeting. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you adjust to this. Losing a loved one is so tragic and you are having to do it in plain sight of everyone. I just want you to know so many of us are praying and thinking of you all.

August 23, 2011
As a baby you were fiesty, a toddler loud and active but as and Adult, you were supremely talented, witty beyond measure, considerate to a fault, as warm and endearing to a stranger as to a family member. Most importantly, as a Brother, you were loved deeply and unconditionally always and forever. I'm having a hard time sharing you right now because my heart is so broken. I've seen three rainbows and experienced an earthquake since you left, was that you?
Sleep tight sweet boy, go find your answers in The Universe.
"Let it rain down on me, hide these tears I'm cryin', so no one can see"
I love you forever and beyond, your Sister

Heaven is one of my all time favorite songs only now I tear up as I listen to it. Its powerful words have taken on a deeper meaning with the loss of Jani. He seemed like such a cool person, one you could sit down with and shoot the breeze. Every comment I have read about him says what a nice guy he was - that says a lot. Not one negative statement. RIP, Jani, you are missed by many.

My world was shattered one week ago today :( I woke up to the heart wrenching news that my "Larger than Life'" superhero rockstar idol (and everyone has atleast one) had passed on. I am slowly coming to the realization that he no longer graces the earth with his presence. At times though, I feel like it is all a bad dream and I can still wake up from it ( I wish). Our Jani, will live on forever through his music and legacy he has left. He can now bathe in the light and sing for God!
To those of you lucky few who knew him as more than a "larger than life super hero" I send my deepest condolences. May God be with you and give you strength.
Heroes live forever and Legends never Die! With all my love,
August 19, 2011
John aka Janie Lane, I will always remember our Field High School days, class of 1982 and all your talent, school plays and all your music. And remember all the walks through the alotment and walking past your house and hearing you playing your drums! We could hear you all way down the road!! Stopping by your house and talking with your dad, and him telling us stories of you and Eric. I came to blossom and listened to Warrant! Heaven and Blind Faith my favorite songs! The class of 1982 will long remember you and will miss you! very talented and lost to young!! R.I.P John Oswald-Janie Lane!
August 19, 2011
When I heard this news all over the Internet, I was shocked to hear that yet another Great Artist is taken so soon for this world. I met you back during the Akron Agora days with Kidd Wicked and I also met your Brother Eric then, My thoughts and prayers are with all those who knew you and with your family....Your music and talent will be missed..
August 19, 2011
i am greatly saddened to hear this news. Jani was so talented and died too young! he will be missed !

In my country we speak Spanish, the music is tropical, salsa, merengue and so on. However hard rock and heavy metal penetrated deep into our island. One of them was Warrant (with Jani Lane). R.I.P and thank you for your legacy.

August 19, 2011
Such a part of so many of our teenage memories. I can't get the song "Heven" out of my head. Music lost a talented musician and song writter. I will never forget the Fox Fest in Michigan and watching him up close. Even the newer songs that alot of people did not recognize still rocked. I would like to offer my condolences to his daughters, siblings, nieces, nephews, wife and ex-wives aswell as all the many friends. Rest in Peace. The music world will never be the same. As we lost a Rock Legend.
August 19, 2011
R.I.P my friend, we will miss you dearly. I will think of you daily when i see the house you grew up in, and listen to your music.

Jani, i will always remember the first time i heard "Heaven" your voice truly was. i was in columbus 3 weeks ago and a station was playing warrant, i came home and bought the cd not knowing that in a few weeks you would be gone, i have played it everyday since. i remember when warrant first came out, couldn't wait to see you in concert. you will be greatly missed, my sympathy to the Oswald family. he will always be in our hearts and i will always hear his voice.
Tina (Akron, Ohio)

My condolences to the family for such a great loss too soon. May you find comfort in knowing he touched the lives of so many strangers.

"How I love the way you move and the sparkle in your eyes, there's a color deep inside them like a blue surburban sky"

That line alone brings back a flood of emotions from my teenage years. Your music deeply touched my soul. It takes me back to the good ol' days of the Akron Agora and Rocky's Skating Center. It was a care free time in my life and your passing feels like a part of me has died. May you feel no more pain. Thank you for the memories Jani!

See you in heaven!
August 18, 2011

Loved your music, saw yoi guys when you tour with poison
August 18, 2011
Such a loss to the music world and the many friends, fans and family. You left an impact on everyone who loved you, may you Rest in Peace Jani.
August 18, 2011
Our loss is nothing to the feeling of loss /grief his family and loved ones must feel. But, what a tragic loss for my generation. The man touched the lives of millions of people. He enjoyed entertaining others through his musical talent. We all pass on ("no one gets out of life alive") but, he's life was clearly cut short, I am certain that he had more to contribute, one more song to write... one more concert to play and to his daughters one more "I love you" to say.
August 18, 2011
Jani u were a major part of my life as ateenager. Warrant was a sound tract 4 my teenage years. They were the best years of my life. Thank u!! U will always be loved & greatly missed. May u REST IN PARADISE!!!
August 18, 2011
god bless him and his family and friends he brightened my day his voice was amazing god be with you
August 18, 2011
I would like to send my condolences to the Oswald Family for the Loss of a very sweet, talented, and extrodinary individual. John (Jani) was a kind soul that treated everyone with respect. I only got to know him personally just a short time. But in that short time he was great. I have admired him and Warrant for over 20 yrs. I am sorry for you all to have to feel such pain. May God Bless you through all your pain and grieving.
August 17, 2011
My sincere condolence to the family of Jani"John Oswald" Lane ... Jani, You will be missed...
August 17, 2011
RIP Jani. Gone too soon and NEVER will be forgotten. Your music will continue to jam on the radio and you will always be apart of the Rock Music family. Prayers sent up to your family and friends through this tough time. May you RIP, your finally in heaven.
August 17, 2011
I did not know Jani personally, but enjoyed the music of Warrant very much. As many times as he visited Ohio, I never made the connection to meet him after Warrant left the radar. The heart of rock and roll is still beating...in his girls, his family/relatives, friends, and the many fans he had. Sometimes when the end of band's flame is out, their lead singers become lost and drift along life's highway with no sense of a strong direction. But I'm sure he did the best that he could. It's just that God called him home after 47 years with us. Heaven is not too far away...for any of us.
August 17, 2011
Jani will be miss by every hair band member. and will be miss with all his gr8 talent the man had a gr8 voice and could sing a tune like no 1 .You wil be missed from around the world and may your music live on..
August 17, 2011
He was the kid in High School that got along with everybody. The jocks, the nerds, the burnouts, he could talk to any of them like he was one of the group. He would've made a hell of a politician. Rest in Peace, John Oswald....
August 17, 2011
R.I.P Jani! You will always live on thru your music. So sorry for your families lost. We lost a most wonderful gifted musician and your family lost a loved one. I have and will always be one of your biggest fans. Thanks for the memories everytime i hear one of your songs it always takes me back to different times in my life! You will be missed..

I seen Jani with Warrant for the first time back in 1989. I was just 8 years old at the time and I loved Jani & band so much! I remember the first time I seen the "Heaven" video. My friends & I couldn't believe how gorgeous Jani was. Sweet memories. So many members of his family as well as friends & fans have these oh so sweet memories too. I am so thankful that we all knew him & knew his music. I am a lifelong fan and I have been trying so hard to fight the tears, but they keep coming. Be at peace dear sweet Jani. Such a gentle, sweet soul taken from all of us way too soon. He can now rest with his parents and we will see him again someday in Rock n' Roll Heaven. Love & miss you Jani.

Jani was the reason I started playing music growing up. Everything about him and Warrant influenced me so much back in the day. I'm sorry to hear of the news of his passing, really saddens me. I met him a handful of times and he was such a down to earth cool guy.

RIP Jani. Love ya bro.

August 17, 2011
I send my condolences to the family, friends, and fans. Although I did not know him personally, he was in my life for almost 30 years starting here in Orlando in a local band and opening the Sunset Strip club, then of course onto being in Warrant. He was such a talented and kind soul and I am so sorry for such a tremendous loss.
August 17, 2011

August 17, 2011
I only met him twice for a couple of brief moments, once in LA in '90, and here in Seattle in '97. He always, was so full of life. That smile! That music! His legacy, his music, and the memories, will live on in all of us. Heaven has some beautiful music up there now. <3
August 17, 2011
The person that I knew back in Brimfield was kind and humble and so full of thoughts and words and music and energy that he emanated love~ for music, his family, and Ohio...he was our hometown hero. If there is any comfort to be found now it is that he is at peace with Bob and Eileen.There are just no words adequate to express my sorrow so I will borrow his: I never thought it would end this way
August 17, 2011
i seen and kinda meet him in massillon,ohio maybe 5 or so yrs ago i will miss u and ur music i now live in la im sorry that u had to go so soon

Warrant was my very favorite band in my early teen years. When you're that age music really has a way of imprinting itself on you. "Heaven" will always be one of my all time favorite songs, and Jani's music will always have a special place in my heart. My deepest sympathies to his friends and family.
August 17, 2011
My Heart is broken from the early passing of Jani "John "
But with his beautiful heart My prayers go out to your Family and friends
Rest in Peace Jani
Rock the house up there in Heaven God Bless us all
August 17, 2011
John aka Jani Lane...".Your music will go on and with that the memory of you with it. May you rest in peace, and know that many many people loved and admired you. You were a kind soul who would strike up a conversation with anyone. "You are my refuge and my sheild; I have put my hope in Your word. Psalm 119:114
August 17, 2011
My condolences go to Jani's family,close friends & fans. Jani was a very talented man and I will always cherish the memories I have of Warrant's music during my teenage years.TY Jani RIP
August 17, 2011
Jani's songs and music meant alot to me, I grew up with them like a soundtrack to my life. Saw Jani perform here in Ohio several times and I loved not only his music but his humor and energy. I'm so sad that he is gone and I hope there will be a public memorial in Ohio where all of us fans can get together to pay our respects to Jani and how much his music, lyrics and songs impacted our lives. My thoughts are with his family as they grieve. Jani will never be forgotten. Thank you for the memories.
August 17, 2011

Warrant and several other 80's rock bands were my childhood. I grew up in a abusive home, and I stayed in my room alot. Warrants music and other bands got me through really tough times. If they only new how much of an impact they had on my life.I want to send out my condolences to the family and friends.God Bless each and everyone of you. Thank you for all your music. It truly touches lives. Barbie(Alabama)
August 17, 2011
We are saddened by the passing of Jani and our hearts and prayers go out to all his Ohio family and two daughters. He will be missed by all. May he R.I.P and always be remembered as a loving father,son,brother,nephew and cousin. He was such a talented man and we will always have his music!Heaven isn't to far away! Love Uncle Rich and Kelly
August 17, 2011
I never personally met Jani, but the first time Warrant came to Cincinnati after the show he got out of the limo and took my and my friend's picture. That was so cool! And I got to sing with him at Bogart's. Must say, his passing is extremely sad and personal. Jani was more than a celebrity to a lot of people, he was very real. Hope to see you again singing with the angels in Heaven!
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
August 17, 2011
"I will always be your biggest fan" I would like to express my condolences to Jani's family and friends. I did not know him and sadly never got the chance to meet him, but I did love him. He was and is my "Song and Dance Man!' I spent most of my life with one of his songs playing in the backround. What a great backingtrack it is! Love from a very heartbroken fan
August 17, 2011
Deepest condolences to the Oswald family. John's music spoke to our generation and instilled the sweetest memories into our lives. May he rest in peace.
August 17, 2011
Such a sad, sad day for so many. I never met you personally (other than you standing on my chair singing at the Richfield Coliseum in 89) but I feel as if I have lost a lifelong friend. Thank you for 20+ years of memories. Also, thank you to the family for sharing Jani/John with us all. May God be with you and comfort you all.
Be In Peace
August 17, 2011
I am glad we were blessed with Jani's presence and sad that he left us way too soon. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to be touched by his music.
Thank you for the memories, Jani. Hope to see you again, rockin in Heaven. Miss you. Love and prayers to the family.
August 17, 2011
He was, in my opinion, the best songwriter of his time and an unbelievable singer. I still play so many of his songs each time I pick up the guitar at home. He inspired me to become a songwriter and I know Heaven is enjoying some sweet melodies. However, his parting grieves me so and my prayers are with your family during this time. Be strong in faith and know that you will see him again.
August 17, 2011
John- you will be greatly missed. I grew up with your music and right in the next town over...Randolph-you went to Field High and I went to Waterloo High. I remember looking at my friend's yearbook - (You graduated in 1982 & I in 1984) You were the person elected for the "Most Talented"- seeing your picture was like... I know he's going to make it big-- and YES you did. You have one the best vocals in ROCK and such a talented songwriter-- Field High was RIGHT!!

I work with your brother Eric at the hospital and over the years gotten to know him and he always talked so highly about you, it's like I personally knew you and through Eric's eyes... I did. I saw you several times play out and had a blast!

Music means alot to me... as I'm also married to a musician and music is his life and mine.... you played with alot of my husband's friends...... Love you ALL!

We went to your shrine at Field High School on Saturday and Sunday to re-light all the candles... you deserve it! I know you were really close with you mom and now you are once again together, forever.... Rock loves you and so do your fans!!

Eric-I'm so very, deeply sorry about John. We use to talk all the time about him at the hospital and seeing you about in Brimfield. Take care and give me a call sometimes at the hospital- I'm a friend there for you. Take good care of his daughters- I know your a GREAT uncle!! God Bless!!

So saddened to hear of Jani's passing. I was lucky to meet him in 1998 after a show in my town, and hang out for a bit on the bus afterward. Jani was wonderful, showed me pics of his kids, kind, happy. What an amazing gift he had. We will miss him in this world very much. Prayers going up for Jani and family. <3
August 17, 2011

Prayers for your family at this difficult time.
August 17, 2011

Jani, I cannot believe how sad I am about your passing. You were so gifted. I loved you in the early days in Warrant..you are Warrant. Then when you appeared on Fit Club it personalized you to me. I could see even though you had problems, you were a kind person. I am so heartbroken and sad that you were alone when so many people thought the world of you. May you rest in peace...you will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to your beautiful daughters and family. Joyce

August 16, 2011
I cannot believe how much your passing has affected me. I was always such a fan, from the beginning and I've never once shed a tear for any celebrity who has died until the day I heard you were gone. I'm just heartbroken and I feel like part of my youth died with you. You'll live forever through your fans and your family, everyone who loved you. My thoughts are with your family right now. Rest in Peace, Jani. Maybe I'll see ya on the other side.
August 16, 2011
You are a truly talented person. You have one of the best voices in rock music ever! I will never forgot how many posters of you and your band were on my wall back then. So sad that your gone. May you rest in peace and fly with the angels in heaven. ~ Melanie
August 16, 2011
I'm hoping you are seeing these lights from heaven to know how much you are loved. You were there every morning for me and every night because your face was all over my walls as a teen. Your music was playing all the time and still is. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.. I wish peace and happiness. Til we meet again... forever in my heart God bless
August 16, 2011
I am deeply saddened of your passing. I may have never met you but your music got me through a very lonely time during my teenage years. You reached so many and did so much for us with your gift and will for an eternity. May you rest in peace God bless you and your family. You will NEVER be forgotten Jani.
August 16, 2011
The reaction I went through took me by surprise when I heard the news. I never knew you but felt like I had lost a friend. I believe many feel the same way which I hope brings comfort to your family as they try to make sense of losing you. Here I am days later with tears still in my eyes and I can't explain it. You were THAT talented. God bless your family.
August 16, 2011
It's so hard to believe you’re gone! I've never cried over a musician’s death, but yours has broken my heart and I'm still in shock. Many of my teenage memories are attached to your music. You will forever be a legend to me, you will be greatly missed! RIP!!!

I've just gone thru pages and pages of messages left for you. It's such a comfort to me to know that I'm not the only one who has taken your death so personally and deeply. You were such a big part of my life for such a long time. You inspired me and moved me with your music. So much so, that I named my daughter after you. You will live on thru your music, your children and in the hearts of all of those you touched. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
August 16, 2011
I was so sad to hear of your passing. I still am in shock. I love your music. You had so much talent as a musician and song writer. I'm 41 and grew up with you in my highschool years. I will never forget you.

Your voice was that of an angel. May you rest in peace. Prayers to your family.
August 16, 2011
A sad day for us from the hair band days. Jani was so Awesome on stage. I was talking to a friend I went to school with and she said when they said he passed on the radio she broke down and cried. She said she has never done that before. I was just in shock. We are too young to have our Music Legends die. I agree we all lost a part of out teen hood when he died. To his children, wife, siblings, nieces and nephews I offer my condolences.
August 16, 2011

August 15, 2011
You could rock and then sing a.sweet song that would touch your soul. RIP...you will be missed but you'll never be forgotten .
August 15, 2011
Does it prove I'm an 80's girl that the death that affected me most is not Cobain but Jani Lane?

A band and a man can fake many things, advertising themselves as a band with a certain name and having a guy sing the words you Jani lived and wrote. It is a passionless exercise. They cannot fake the soul, emotion, and vulnerability of your voice in those songs. You are so underrated as a vocalist and songwriter. I regret and have guilt over not having told you these things when you were alive.

Much love to you Jani forever and wish you would have known how much you meant to a generation of kids, who grew into adults and to whom you still mean so much! The music will live on forever, we will expose it to our kids and let others know about your incredible talent. Me, I'm hoping to get a tribute to you tattoed on me so you'll remain alive that way too. I hope in rock n' roll heaven you are getting the peace that eluded you here on earth. Our loss is "Heaven"s gain.
August 15, 2011
JANI - If I had a dime for every time my best friend and I blasted Warrant and every other hair band in my car while we drove around singing all your hits, I would be so rich I wouldn't need to work!! We loved you and all that the 80's music embodied, I'm 38 and when I listen to it it still takes me back to that glorious, stupid happy time in my life. I was so sad to hear that you had passed on, but you will always live through your music, and don't worry, we will never "define you and your music" by the song "Cherry Pie"! haha, like you said, the radio stations needed a hit and they got one. But that was only one song on one album, the rest are just as good and better! A little part of my teenage-hood died when you did. May you rest in peace you hottie~!
August 15, 2011
RIP Jani. Saw Jani play about a year ago in Tama,Iowa sounded great,loved hearing the Warrant songs live.My prayers are with the family and friends.Thanks for the hits.

Remember seeing Jani at the Hi-Fi Club in Lakewood when Jamie Rowe/London Calling played. I asked Jesus to save me in early 70's. I always would say a prayer for any local musicians. Now my prayers go out to his family and all those who love music & want you to know that the love of God is real & if you ask Him to reveal His love for you He will. He did for me ... (John 3:16)
-Diane Noga Cleveland, Oh
August 15, 2011
Jani will be remain with us through his music and now he will also be rockin in Heaven with Ronnie James Dio and many other talented musicians. Such a beautiful person gone too soon. Blessed thoughts with your daughters as the learn how to deal with life in your absence.
August 15, 2011
WHEN I HEARD THE SAD NEWS JANI HAD PASSED,
MY HEART ACHED.
ALL I COULD DO IS THINK ABOUT HIS CHILDREN AS I AM A FATHER OF THREE.
HOW SAD IT IS FOR THEM TO BE WITHOUT THEIR FATHER.
JANI WAS SUCH A GIVING PERSON.
JANI GAVE ME MY FIRST REAL BREAK WHICH LEAD TO MY 15 PLUS YEAR CAREER WITH SLAUGHTER & VINCE NEIL.
JANI INVITED ME TO BE HIS SOUND ENGINEER WHICH LEAD TO MANY OPPORTUNITIES, INCLUDING PLAYING GUITAR FOR HIS SOLO GIGS AND HELPING CREATE WHAT WOULD BECOME THE JANI LANE SUNSET STRIP IN ORLANDO, FL.
JANI GAVE ME A SHOT WHEN NO ONE ELSE DID AND BELIEVED IN MY TALENTS AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT.
JANI, YOU WILL TRUELY BE MISSED, AND I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR YOUR KINDNESS & FRIENDSHIP.
August 15, 2011

Thank you for touching my life with your music.
August 15, 2011
My condolences to the family and close friends of Jani. Beauty in every song he sang with such a rich and powerful voice. You will be missed by many, but you will live on in the beauty of your voice until the end of time. Thank you for the many years of giving your gift of voice to so many people, and the smiles you put on so many fans faces. The gift of song can take you back to a special moment or time in ones life and it can also reach deep inside ones soul. Thank you for reaching into my soul so many times. You may be gone Jani, but never will you be forgotten.....
August 15, 2011
Jani Lane smiled at me from my bedroom walls and sung to me from my car stereo as a teenage girl just as he does now and I am 39 years old. As a matter of fact, I am watching the video for Heaven right now on VH1 Classics. My wedding gift 20 years ago was Warrant tickets from my husband. We were both saddened and shocked at his passing. We will always remember Jani' music, to us, he WAS Warrant. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends, family and all of his fans. His death has touched us as much as his life did. He had the kindest eyes and an amazing smile! Rest in peace Jani! We love you!!
August 15, 2011

August 15, 2011
Jani, you meant more to me & a lot of other people then you could have ever possibly known. I wish EVERYONE could have had a chance to tell you how we truly felt about you. Thank you for everything u ever gave, may u be happy & at peace on the other side.
August 15, 2011
I am so sorry for the family and everybody that loves him this is such a tragic loss my thoughts and prayers are with you... He will never be forgotten and will always live on through his wonderful music..
August 15, 2011
Saw you perform several times. You will be Missed
August 15, 2011
RIP Jani. You were the best. My sympathy to his friends and family. You will will be missed.
August 15, 2011
May he R.I.P. He won't be forgotten.
August 15, 2011
I still find it hard to believe that you are really gone. I was a Big Fan from day 1. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to meet you back in '93, you were a down to earth cool guy. I am also truly glad I had one last chance to see you perform w/ Warrant at Rocklahoma 2008. You were an amazing singer/songwriter and I pray you are at peace now. Too young to die. My condolences to his family and children. May God Bless you all and give you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Keep Rockin' in Heaven Jani!
August 15, 2011
Jani you will be missed by many, such a great talent for songwriting topped with the voice of an angel. I hope that ou are resting peacefully and I pray for your family. Jani you made Warrant and they will never be anything to me without you.
August 15, 2011
RIP Jani we will miss you! Your music will live on and on! Keep rocking in Heaven.
August 15, 2011
I remember being 10 years old the first time I heard Jani. It was the video to Heaven and I loved it. Jani, if you didn't know while you were here how much you were truly loved, I really hope you see it now. Please watch out for your family, friends and fans and we'll all see you when we're united in Heaven. Keep rocking in Heaven!
August 15, 2011
I remember Jani in Dorian Grey as a drummer, who was so awesome!!!! He then became a superstar as a songwriter and singer!!! I saw him last at his club Jani Lane's Sunset Strip, and he remembered me. He was always sweet, kind, and very much the gentleman. I pray his family and friends are comforted to know that he is loved and will never be forgotten. I pray Jani is at peace and singing with that awesome band in heaven!!!
August 15, 2011
Such a sad loss r.i.p jani xx
August 15, 2011
Thanks for being a part of the soundtrack to my life. RIP dude.
August 15, 2011
Hello Jani.I miss you man.I hope your soul will find its peace in heaven. Your music was,is and alwayz be a part of my life.Keep on hardrockin' up there!!!
August 15, 2011
You will be dearly missed Jani Lane. You & Warrant helped to keep Rock n Roll fun. Something that is sorely missing right now.
August 15, 2011
How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside them
Like a blue surburban sky......loved your music. So sad to see people leave this world too soon!! I pray Jani knew God and accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior so that I will have the opportunity to see him again in HEAVEN. To his family - God Bless and I pray you take comfort in the arms of Jesus.
August 15, 2011
I have MANY wonderful memories of Jani but one in particular comes to mind that has always stuck with me that makes me smile everytime I think about it. It was outside the Toy Tiger in Louisville, KY after a show in the late 90's. My friends and I were hanging out after the show outside where most of the guys were signing autographs and such. Warrant was plastered on the marquee and a car drove by and some guy screamed "Warrant Sucks" at the top of his lungs. Without thinking Jani screamed back "No They Don't"! Nothing groundbreaking but, like I said, it just always makes me smile.

Thank you for the memories and the amazing body of work that you left for us all to enjoy. Your passing has affected me like no other celebrity's passing before. I thought of you as more than just another "rock star". Your voice, your words, and your music are so ingrained in my mind and in my heart that I feel like I've lost a brother or a best friend. In my mind, you ARE one of my best friends.

God bless you, your family, your friends, and your fans. Jani. I will NEVER forget you. Rest in peace my friend.
August 15, 2011
R.I.P JANI YOUR ALWAYS LOVED AND FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS...YOU LEFT WAY TOO SOON HEATHER OHIO
August 15, 2011
My deepest prayers for the family for you loss. Beyond the musician he was a father and husband.
August 15, 2011
You were really one of the greatest.
August 15, 2011
Jani was an inspiration to anyone that had the courage to pick up an instrument and take to the stage. He helped move music in a direction that inspired generations of musicians. I was fortunate enough to see him in several arenas as well as a few small clubs. Every show was amazing, regardless of the venue's size. He was truly and beyond a doubt THE Song and Dance Man. Thank you Jani for the inspiration that made me a better performer, musician and person. You will be missed.
August 15, 2011
The world is saddened by an untimely loss.Watching him on Fit Club, you got to know him more personally than just a performer, but as a human. I met him breifly after a show, and he was genuinely sweet and really appreciated the fans.Condolences to the family and friends.
August 15, 2011
This is such a tragic time we loss one of the best singer songwriters in music i so enjoyed listening to Jani sing his music will ALWAYS BE APART OF MY LIFE may you rest in peace JANI YOU WILL BE IN OUR <3 HEARTS <3 FOREVER YOUR FANS WILL NEVER LET U BE FORGOTTEN MAY GOD WATCH OVER YOUR DAUGHTERS R.I.P.MY SPECIAL ANGEL <3 <3 <3

August 15, 2011
You are gone but not forgotten...

August 15, 2011
Such a talented man. No one will even come close to having an amazing voice as you did. RIP ~ Legends live forever ~ Rock n Roll Heaven!!!
August 15, 2011
In losing we find. The hardest things do brings BLESSINGS. Unexpected, unexplained blessings. We would trade our blessings back for our loved one who we so desperately miss though. Still the blessings are what we have to hold on to. We learn how much it hurts to be separated from someone we cherish. We can, in some way identify with how badly God hurts when we are separated from him too. Thank goodness we can be connected in spirit visits while our loved ones are in the loving arms of the lord, continuing their purpose from a different stand point, and that they can also be with us still, in very special ways. GIP~ Glow In Paradise Jani. XO

August 15, 2011
Jani Lane was one of the top songwriters of the melodic rock genre. I was fortunate enough to see him perform a couple of times in the 90's. I've purchased all of his music that's been available, and followed him via his website and myspace over the years. I don't know him personally, but I'm deeply saddened by his untimely death. Jani Lane will be missed by be and thousands, if not millions, of others. Rest in Peace to a beautiful man.
August 15, 2011

Condolences to His Family, RIP Jani.
August 15, 2011
I have fond memories of seeing Jani perform with Warrant in the late 80s & early 90s. I remember an occasion when Jani left the main stage to sing "Heaven" on a little stage in the middle of the crowd. He mentioned that he wanted everyone, even the people towards the back, to see well. Very considerate, and talented songwriter. My sympathy to his family and friends.
August 15, 2011
I never had a chance to meet Jani but, had a chance to see him perform a couple times.Jani was an awesome artist. Warrant is not the same without him! He will be truly missed!
August 15, 2011

I will always remember your first performance at Hammerjacks in Baltimore, Maryland. You really rocked the house. I remember being nervous that you were climbing across the rafters of the club which was two stories high above the stage. My heart goes out to your family.
I am sad that you were in such pain. Maria Davis, Baltimore, MD
August 15, 2011
You are a beautiful talent. I miss the 80's and MTV, and watching all WARRANTS videos, and your beautiful smile!!!!!

August 15, 2011
I was only 13 when Warrant had their first hit...Jani inspired me to start singing the second I heard his voice. Singing became such an important part of who I am and gives me such joy and I have him to thank for that...I have followed Jani's career and music since the beginning and the world has lost an incredible talent. I had the honor of meeting him after a concert (after I stalked him for hours :p) and I am so thankful for that, especially now. My condolences go out to his family and friends, I can only imagine what an incredible person he must have been to have known and loved. Thank you, Jani, for all the beautiful music and endless inspiration.
August 15, 2011
MUCH TOO YOUNG AND I AM SO VERY SORRY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
August 14, 2011
So saddened by the loss of yet another....my thoughts are with Jani's family and friends. Heaven is going to be so much fun when I get there!!

I loved you Jani.. You were a great Son In Law. We will Miss you terribly... Loves MiMi...
August 14, 2011
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

gone so soon. Now your talents will be utilized in God's choir. Sympathy to everyone who knew and love him.
August 14, 2011
It was love at first sight and song. Those eyes; those lips that would form the best smile on the planet. He looked like an angel and sang like one, too. He was charming, smart, and just enough of a "bad boy" to make my mother's hair stand on end and for me to crave more. Jani and his music molded my teen years. I have been broken hearted since I first heard the news. Jani's earlier music is relevant, even 20 years later. His passing is truly tragic. He was a beautiful soul and gave so many people a wonderful gift. I am so sorry that he is gone. I wish his entire family my deepest sympathies and hope that his girls especially know how very wonderful their father was.
August 14, 2011
Jani, Thanks for the music...you always had a song for whatever I was going through in life...I hope you found some peace.
August 14, 2011
Was hoping to meet you someday Jani. I know when you would come to Cleveland, you would show up unexpectedly at Clevelands Breakfast Club shows. Wanted to be there one night when you were in town and hear you sing your own songs! My sympathy goes out to all your friends and family!
August 14, 2011
Thursday the world didn't just lose a talented artist...There is a family out there that lost a son, a brother, a uncle, a cousin, and most important of all 2 little girls a daddy and a wife her husband and best friend. My heart goes out too the family and band members who's life he touched. Jani you might be gone, But your eternal light will shine on forever. My heart truly goes out too you.
August 14, 2011
MAY GODS PRECIOUS LOVE AND COMFORT SURROUND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. I THANK YOU ALL FOR THE MANY SONGS AND GREAT MEMORIES THAT I HAVE OF WARRENT, AND I HOPE THAT HEAVEN IS WHERE JANI WAS SEARCHING FOR . MAY HIS DEAR SWEET SOUL REST IN PEACE. ALWAYS IN MY PRAYERS. VJC
August 14, 2011
So sad to hear this. I also was born and raised in Ohio. I lived in Salem, Ohio, which was right down the road from Akron. I would go to Akron all the time. I loved when Jani and Bobbie were together. They made one beautiful girl together. GOD BLESS his other daughter and his family. Seems so surreal. To Jani...May you be in peace now. Rest now in heaven and wait for your loved ones. You were truely a talented artist and a kind soul...
August 14, 2011
Jani, May God give you eternal rest, peace and everlasting life. God Bless your children and family. Life is sooo unfair. You were taken too soon, because God saw a Very Special Love in your Heart. Jesus says you are the light of the world; you will be a Precious Guardian Angel watching over your children and family. Heaven isn't too far away, closer to it everday... Best Song. Your precious memories and beautiful songs will live on always and forevermore. I understand the pain you were going through after your mom died...seven years.. she was the glue of your family. I will forever feel the pain of my mom, she was also the glue of our family.We were the same age (40) when our mom's died. i needed special beautiful words to engrave on my mom's stone and your beautiful songs helped me write down words for my mom's stone. Your in Heaven with your precious mom and one day you will be reunited with your family. Hope we meet. God always takes the Very Best First. God Bless you and your Children and Family Forever.
August 14, 2011
God has another singing angel...My prayers go out to Jani's family and friends. He was so gifted at writing and performing. Jani, you will be truly missed...See you in Heaven! Love you!!!!

Jani definately made an impact on my teenage years. I was, and still am a huge fan. May his family find peace in this difficult time. God bless them all. RIP Jani
August 14, 2011
Jani- I'm so sad that you are no longer here. You used to live right by my work and I got to drive by every day and on those days I got to see you outside brought such joy and happiness to me. Seeing you perform both solo and with warrant were some of my best concert experiences. Your music means a Lot to me, although right now it's just too hard to listen to it, hearing you sing makes me happy but knowing you won't sing anymore here on earth makes listening to your songs so bittersweet. Time will help me heal and I will blare your music and smile again. I will always be a fan of you. Love ya!
August 14, 2011

Will always remember being at the house with the family and amazed at the talent. God bless you Rick Mic Vic. Sorry for your loss.My whole family sends you love and may God watch over & comfort you.
August 14, 2011
Your music was always such a joy Jani! You always treated your fans with a lot of love! I know personally I will miss you as a singer, songwriter, and foremost as a giving and loving person! One of my favorite songs is "Stronger now"...that song could mean so many different things but I believe now you are and those words are from the heart! It helped me get through the recent loss of my father unexpectedly! I love you Jani and god bless your spirit and your family, friends, and all the others that were blessed to know you and love you! As you say in "Heaven"...we are ALL closer to it every day. Sometimes we just don't know how close we are....Have peace and see you on the flip side!

Robin M. (Gilbertsville, PA)
August 13, 2011
The music world is less one more. Jani was my crush and I met him a few years back while he was staying in Erie, PA. He had just come back from the YMCA and was all sweaty but he still took the time to have his picture taken with me and hug me and give me his autograph. Jani, you will be missed dearly by many.
August 13, 2011
my heaven enjoy your music a 1000 times more then we did here on earth. hope to see u there with the rest of the great 1,s.

August 13, 2011
God saw how much you struggled, and only He could set you free....so He put His arms around you and gently whispered "Come with me". With tear filled eyes we're mourning, since you've passed away....because although we loved you dearly, we couldn't make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating, your angelic voice is now at rest...as you make your home in Heaven, we'll miss you more than you'd have guessed. We'll cherish every memory and song with which we were blessed...but there's no doubt our hearts were broken as God proved -- HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST. XOXO
August 13, 2011
Rest in Peace Jani!!! You are in Heaven now!!!

August 13, 2011
You started to recognize me at the shows always in front, the last show I saw you at, you gave me your towel. I stopped showing up because I had a child, I hope you know I still worshiped the ground you walked on. My love for you indirectly, yet directly, led to my son, and I thank you for that (I made some friends at a show). I wish I had a chance to know you better. Miss you like crazy.
August 13, 2011

Everyone is remembering Jani...I remember John "Ozzie" Oswald. Back in junior high, he was intelligent, funny, athletic, and yes, musical. He was my secret crush! I enjoyed observing him in class...he was smart! He was fun to watch on the basketball court and on the football field. I will never forget the junior high dances where he was allowed to perform briefly for his classmates. I knew then he had a special talent. While the world mourns Jani Lane, my heart is broken at the loss of John. I am grateful for the friendship we shared, and now more than ever I will cherish those junior high memories! May God Bless your children and be with your family in a very special way!

He was very happy and made sure everyone was having a good time. He will be missed.
I'm very greatful to know he has a beautiful legacy to remind us he will never be forgotten.

My sympathies and prayers go out to all his families and friends.

Heaven awaits us all.

John called me back in 1989 when Warrant's first record was released. I had no idea who he was. He invited me to go on tour with the band as their tattooist. From that moment on John became my brother. He and I along with the rest of the guys in the band shared many years and tours together. John invited me into his home where I shared many private conversations with him, watched him play and write music, I had the honor of hearing their hit songs before they were even recorded. I was proud to have him in my home as well. I loved this man as my brother and my heart is truly broken for his daughters and family. I will miss him always.

To Johns family,
I went to school with John and he was one of those people that was kind to everyone. That is the one thing made me think so much of him. Yes, he was very talented and I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing his talents in school. I did not follow his music though I was very happy for him and often wondered about how the big time affected him. I was disappointed when he didn't come to our class reunion, but was not surprised that he remebered us by sending champaine for the occaission. It answered my question about how making it big affected him, he was still the kind hearted John Oswald I knew in school. I am glad his dreams came true, but to me he will always be John. I wish your family my sympathy and pray for you as you come to deal with your loss. God Speed.
Sincerely, Julie (Knapp) Christy

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
