Mattie and Family, my heart breaks for you on the loss of Lane. A great man he was - I first met Lane when I joined Lions International many years ago. I always enjoyed Lane's company whether it be at Lions or at the Food Plaza - I well remember him trimming the brussel sproats. Both Lane and you made a great life in Invercargill, raised a great family, and Lane was an icon in the grocery business - from memory the first to create/start a supermarket! So long Lane, thanks for the great times we had.
