    So very sad to read about Lane’s passing. My family and I lived down the street from Lane in Aberdeen. We adopted our dog Dolly, from Lane and his mother. She was and is a bright star in our lives. I have never forgotten Lane or Carolyn. It was a small window of my life that will always stay open. Fond memories!! We lost our mother, Berniece Jones Huntsinger on July 31, 2017 in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Blessings and prayers to your family from our family.. Denita Huntsinger
