When I think of Bro. Laney I think of his kind, gentle and caring spirit. He always went out of his way to greet me and make me feel welcome. I looked forward to seeing him every time I went to church. I will be praying for the family.

One of the sweetest men you would ever want to meet. If you needed to know anything about being a POP he wrote the book.
Another talent was gardening, always had a quick fix for any garden to grow perfect.
