    Thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Rest Easy classmate, Crisfield High Class of 1977.

    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”​—Rom. 12:15.

  • Sending thoughts and prayer to the Lane family and friends during this time of sorry from my family and myself. This young lady was well liked and will be missed. May she rest in peace.

  • Sure will miss my cousin Coolie with her wild, wonderful and beautiful self. I’m so glad that she made so many happy and she enjoy all that life offered her including the joy of family, friends and finally the love of Jesus who welcomed her to a new beginning. The Lane’s will always evoke her name as a memorial to her full and God ordained life.
