“My condolences to the Lane family. Girls I know it’s been a hard week and my prayers are with you and your families. Aunt Betty was a special person. I always enjoyed seeing her. I want to thank the funeral home there for putting this live stream out so that I could be in attendance at both Kevin and your mom‘s funerals. Wish I could’ve been there but with this crazy world it’s just not safe. Hope someday to get up to see you all have kind of a family reunion. And again My condolences to you all. Rip Aunt Betty.”

“To the Siblings: Jim and Treva, Karen and Bill, and Shirley and husband I met all of you through Karen, as we were great friends and classmates. I am so sorry for your loss. I always liked Betty, she always had a laugh or a smile on her face. I always enjoyed being around her. I had married Don Campbell by the time she lost Bob, so our friendship was re-united so to speak, when Don and I went to the funeral home. After that I enjoyed sending and reading Christmas card exchanges. My condolences also go to the rest of her family. Linda Lou

“There are no words to ease your pain and loss - just know that we love you girls and pray peace will come to you soon. I remember your mother always smiling when I'd be at your house, never a cross word, and so quietly beautiful in her manners and looks. Rest in peace, Betty. ”

“We're so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a sweet and caring woman. Every time I saw her, she always had a smile and something good to say. The world will be a sadder place with her not in it. You girls have had a rough time what with losing Kevin and now your mom, but there are a lot of friends who would be glad to talk and listen when you're ready. Praying for all.”
