One of my earliest memories of Aunt Lane was her working in her hair salon. I loved going into her salon and watch her work. I will never forget the many times we played Uno or SkipBo or Phase Ten with my mom and Aunt Irma and Aunt Marie and many others. I will never forget the laughter and how much fun it was to come visit her and everyone else. She will be greatly missed.♥️

She loved working in her salon and loved those who came in. She loved her family and was always very proud of them.
