Reflections for Trooper David J. Lane

I think about you every second of the day, I still can't believe your gone. I keep waiting for you to walk through the door, smile, and ask for a hug. You made my life complete and for that I will forever be grateful. Even though my heart is broken, I know what you would say "It is what it is". You paid the ultimate price and I know you wouldn't have had it any other way; you died with honor, doing what you loved. I am so proud of everything that you have done and am proud to have been on my way to becoming your wife. I truly hope that someday we can be together again, and pick up where we left off; until then, rest in peace.
I love you with all of my heart, always and forever.

Trooper Lane,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served as a U.S. Army Paratrooper in Afghanistan and Iraq. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Airborne All The Way!

Its hard to believe that this is happening again to everyone. I know you are in good company up there, and you both are keeping a close eye on everyone.

Dave,
The short time we spent together I came to know you as an outstanding young man. The more I found out about you the more my respect for you grew. I was looking forward to calling you my son-in-law. See you when I see you.

Brother,
Its 1:15AM and im in Japan with the military. I think of you everyday and talk about you as much as possible. I met a guy from 82nd who was in Iraq with you and I was telling him all about you. Im so happy that I was able to serve with you as a State Trooper and in the military. I really cant wait to see you or hear some of your jokes. It was such an honor that you asked me about joining the State Police and even more watching you excel. Maybe some day I will understand. I know that you did more then most do in a life time. I know you are loved by me and so many others.
Rest for now - Mike

My heart aches so much for you....to see that...grin or hear let's hug it out or what ya got, Mom! I know why you loved to be a Trooper and why you loved the men and women you worked with. They are truly amazing and an honor to know as well as all the law enforcement officers all over the US who have contacted us. They will be in our hearts forever. We received a letter yesterday..a Mom you helped. My heart is broken but it beats with Pride reading the wonderful letters written by so many caring people who take the time to write them. Hopefully someday I will be able to repay the kindness and compassion given to us by so many. Our hearts ache for all the families who have lost their loved one... it is the worst possible loss. I still expect you to walk through the door and say this is just a joke...BUT......know that we will talk about you often....miss you so much... and ALWAYS LOVE YOU MORE EVERYDAY......YOUR GRATEFUL MOM!!

Dave,

You made me laugh every day I worked with you. I still can't believe you are gone. All the times we talked and laughed are still vivid in my mind. I still hear your voice and see that smile...that warped look in your eyes that we all loved. You were one of the best cops I have ever known. Everyday I drive past that spot and get tears in my eyes. You were such a great person and we won't get over losing you. Thanks for being there for me and my family. You were always a phone call away...we miss you brother!
