  • To George’s Daughters, Sons-in-Laws, Sister, Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren,

    George was the best neighbor and friend for which anyone could have wished. We shared hundreds of stories over the past 20 years. George was always kind, giving, and respectful. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge, but never offered advice unless requested. He had a great love and admiration for his wife and daughters, and never missed an opportunity to share how fortunate he felt to have been so blessed. He would say: “Well, I know I shouldn’t brag, but, I am proud of my girls.”

    While the days ahead will be sad for us not to see him outside on his mower, sitting in his swing in his back yard, or hearing how well this year’s surrounding crop is doing; our hearts will be filled with memories of George and the neighborly love and kindness he shared with us for so many years.

    Our sincere condolences to all whose lives he touched.

    • The family of Ray Lane of West Mansfield leaves condolences. A friend of mine called to tell me of Georges passing because he noticed a resemblance to me and Gary Lane (Roy’s son). Love to all.

  • Dear Debbie and family,
    I remember your father as being a quiet man and so very nice! Brings back many wonderful memories of our childhood.

    Our sincere condolences.
    Jay and Lynn Hock Dunham

  • My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this time. I really enjoyed watching the video and catching a larger view of George’s life, his family, and farm, as I only met him one time. George resting on the porch with a little one reminded me of my own fond memories with my Great-Grandfather on his farm in Nebraska so many years ago. I know you will miss him dearly, but these are those special memories that carry on and make you what you are today. I know he had to be proud. As you all were of him.

  • Lane sisters,
    We are so sorry for your loss.
    Your dad was a great guy
    Dad (Bill) enjoyed visiting with him.

  • I had the good fortune to work with Donna and hear all the wonderful stories about George. I know he was blessed with daughters who cherished him. I wish I could share my respect and condolences in person but instead… Donna one big hug from me to you and your family
    With love Rick Bivens
