It was truly an honor and privilege to have worked with Lance for over 20 years and to build what started as a work relationship and ended as him being a true friend and a brother from another mother. I will greatly miss his input and discussions on work related topics as well as our discussions on Bailee and Kayla’s softball developement. Susan you did extremely well in having Lance by your side all these years and I will miss him deeply. RIP little buddy, we will meet again someday and continue our conversation about how sorry our Redskins are. God bless,
