Lance will be missed and was loved by so many. He never met a stranger. The day he asked me if he could say he was my brother on fb, it was an honor. He was a great friend and brother. Love you Lance, till we meet again.....

Lance was the kind of Friend,we all need to have.Always with a comforting,encouraging word.Lance maybe overwhelmed with troubles of his own,but he always had time,to listen to yours.His last decision show what kind of kind man he was,pulling his truck over,when he knew something was wrong,protecting his fellow drivers.May God Be With Him,and ALL of his family
