I offer my most sincere condolences to the parents, and family of Trooper David Lane, as well as to those whose lives he has touched.

Remember that Life is eternal; and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon; And a horizon is the limit of our sight.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, may your perpetual light shine upon him, may his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

Trooper Lane will not be forgotten by those of us who have also lost loved ones, and come to this site to honor them as well as to pay our respect to this extended family of LEO's, who have also been called back home to God, much too young, and much too soon.

May God bless and comfort this family as they grieve the loss of their loved one.

With my deepest sympathy and prayers.

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes..
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too...
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand...
That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready, in Heaven far above..
And that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye..
For all my life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I though of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow..
I though of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home..
When God looked down and smiles at me,
From his great golden throne,
He said "this is eternity, and all I've promised you"
Today for life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew..
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same day,
there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true..
Though there were times you did some things,
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven,
And now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand, and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart..
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart..

"I am the Trooper"

I have been where you fear to be,
I have seen what you fear to see,
I have done what you fear to do -
All these things I have done for you.

I am the person you lean upon,
The one you cast your scorn upon,
The one you bring your troubles to -
All these people I've been for you.

The one you ask to stand apart,
The one you feel should have no heart,
The one you call "The Statie,"
But I'm just a person, not to be hated.

And through the years I've come to see,
That I am not always what you ask of me;
So, take this badge ... take this gun ...
Will you take it ... will anyone?

And when you watch a person die
And hear a battered baby cry,
Then do you think that you can be
All these things you ask of me?

(Author unknown)

RIP brother, may God bless your loved ones. You will never be forgotten!
