My beautiful, funny, and loving sister, Lana, added her burst of serendipity to every occassion. Her red shoes always found a place on her feet! I will never make a pan of dressing without hearing her voice. Heaven won't be the same with Lana there, and my life will never be the same without her. I love you, #1 with all my heart...#3

Whenever I think of Lana, her big smile and infectious laugh come to mind. I remember watching her perform in High School band as a majorette and being amazed at how high she could throw that baton! She will be so missed and never forgotten! Much love and prayers to the family.

We wanted to share this quote with you from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.

Love, Richard and Sharon
