Not sure what to say?

Dear Fred and family:

We are so saddened to hear of Lane's passing. He was such a fine person and I will definitely miss him. He was a fighter to the end. I know he is now reunited with his mother Wynelle and others he loved. Just know we are praying for you and the family.


John Burnett and Family (son of the late Jamie Walker Burnett--Lane's cousin)

I will always remember going on an excursions with Lane in Europe. Although he was hurting, he kept it to himself so that others would better enjoy themselves - he IS a selfless individual. Lane was not a respecter of person - choosing instead to ignore the temporal differences that separate us here on this earth. I am proud to be his friend and I expect to continue to experience his friendship as his life force is transformed.

So sorry to hear of Lane's passing. I will remember his kindness and humor and the love he had for his art. It always brightened our day to see you both come in to the shop. Our prayers are with you.May God's peace comfort you Fred,and knowing that Lane is breathing easy now.
Love, Marilyn
