Condolences left for Charles A. Lane:

    Charlie was one of the nicest men I have ever known. I didn't get to know him that well until I was preparing to leave for college last fall. We both had a great love for the state of Kentucky and he and I talked about how beautiful it is every time we saw each other. Charlie always made me feel so loved whenever I came home for the holidays. He wanted to hear everything about my school experience and was so interested in how I was doing. I'm so glad that he is in Heaven now, but I will miss him so much. His hugs always brightened my day and showed me the true love he had for other people. He was a great man and I will never be able to forget his love and kindness.

    Freda.... I just learned of Charlie's Homegoing and send you my condolences. It's been many years since our paths have crossed but there is a blessed assurance that when we leave the family here on Earth, we are ever present with our Lord.

    Cling to the comfort of the Holy Spirit and the Grace of God, our Father.
