I am so sorry to hear of Lance's passing. To share a memory, Lance was one of my daughter's very first boyfriends. Though they only dated briefly, they remained friends throughout high school. I remember Lance as one of the most polite young men Abby ever introduced me to and I recall that his father was so supportive and involved. He even took the young couple to Christo's for dinner on more than one occasion. I am so, so sorry for your loss. This is such a tragedy and one that has touched so many of us deeply even if we only enjoyed Lance for a brief moment. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
