What a God filled life Lane led. He is now home in heaven. I remember him putting together shoeboxes for us to fill at OCC packing parties. Prayers for you all.

Scott and Family,
Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Lane, I know he had to be a man of great strength and integrity because I can see that in the family. It’s always tough to say good-bye, but remember the great times and now know your dad is creating new great times. God Bless all of you.
Sincerely, Todd and Jodi Hoke
