Trooper Lane,

While at the Academy, Tpr Lane made us laugh when we needed some humor amidst the stress as Recruits. I last saw him during a funeral detail in Governor in the summer of 2008. Let us all remember the dangers we face while we engage in the everyday task of driving. I commend his service to his community and his country. Rest in peace, Dave.

Trooper David Lane, sir, you've been on a long mission that took you from IRAQ/Afghanistan, into the highways of New York to fulfill a purpose that God had planned for you from the date of your Birth. You have spent those years as one of Gods Chosen Servants willed to the preservation of life, and property, as well as the American freedom for all people. You have come to the end of that purpose as you've satisfied what God seen as your goal. Now God shall welcome you into the heavens with "Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant"! Sir, with deep respect I extend to you a final salute on a job "Well Done", and one that is just beginning for you for all that you've done for everyone, including me. I extend my condolences to your precious family, and all of the friends and comrades of the New York State Police.

We Salute Our Fallen Brother

For I’m already being poured out like a drink offering,
And the time has come for my departure; I have fought
The good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me a crown of righteousness…2 Timothy 4:6-8.

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will
Of God lives forever…1 John 2:17

Today we stand to salute our brothers’ departure from here
He’ll leave behind a family and those who hold him dear
In a career he served where all give some, yet he gave his all
He leaves this earth behind as he received his final call

The risks he faced on this final tour was one of a unique kind
His bravery surpassed his courage at last he leaves a world behind
Everyday he’ll be remembered for all the special things he did
He patrolled the streets as Gods chosen servant to him goodbye we bid

Don’t worry our brother in blue you’ll always be a part of our mind
We’ll always recall the bright face you bore one that’s so very kind
The hours you spent making a difference protecting all mankind
You stood your watch and kept the faith of one so hard to find

We Salute Our Fallen Brother for the impeccable job he done
You walked tall on duty with integrity second to no one
The beat you worked was like a battlefield in a society filled with change
Yet you never wavered in your commitment to a job that somehow was strange

The flag of our nation will not fly at half mast across the entire USA
But trust us dear brother with taped badges we honor you this way
A symbol of a fallen brother that graced our presence everyday
We’ll always salute the job you performed before you went away!
