Daddy, I know we didn't have a chance to spend a lot of time together,I will remember the times we had, our conversations and sheding our tears together showed me you were a very strong emotional man with a big heart that you tried to hide sometime, but I'm enough like you to see thru you and know you had a lot of love in your heart, I will always remember the good times we had working your funky puzzles and ridng in the speeding truck down the country roads laughing about the deer hunting Ricky,Bobby and me did and The cow I tried to milk that's all good times and memories of you,my other Mother,my brothers and sisters that I will always cherish. I loved you unconditional as you did me,I will see you again in a much better place where we will not be suffering we will run the streets of gold together. I wish I could be there with my family so we could all be together talking about daddy. I'm very proud to be a Lane and all of us will take care of each other in your honor.I'm proud to be a LANE.I LOVE YOU,BRENDA J.
