My prayers are forever with Cheryl and the entire Lane Family. I often time think about David with a smile in my heart. I have always enjoyed our conversations while he was assigned to SP Watertown zone. I also had the honor, however sad, of coordinating his funeral arrangements within Division of State Police. Dave was a good man, and he will NEVER EVER BE FORGOTTEN.
