Lane and I met and were co-workers at Eagle Snacks many years ago before he worked for Frito Lay. Always a pleasant person and a joy to be around. I saw him not long ago and we talked for a good bit. As always he was in good spirits. I'm so sorry to hear about you and your families loss. He was a really good person. My prayers are with you all.

No one could find a truer, more perfect love than the love Layne had for Emily and she for him. It was evident in every gesture, word, smile, glance, and laughter the two shared.
While he may be missed by all that loved him, there is comfort in knowing the bountiful love he shared with everyone he ever met. He was the most giving spirit I ever knew.

You, Layne, Lindsey, and Jeremy are in our thoughts and prayers.

I knew Layne through Circle K. He was one of my good friends. All he ever talked about was his wife Emily. She's all we ever talked about. How much he loved her. It breaks my heart to know hes gone and at such a young age. When the new chip man told me he was gone i just couldnt believe it. I loved Layne very much and he will be missed so much. The way his smile just lit up our store.
