The memory I have of Mr. Lanier: Somedays I volunteered to go sit with him at the hospital and I recall looking at all his family photos he had in his room and one of the phots was of him and about three other young men. At that time I wasn’t sure if Mr Lanier was one of the guys in the picture so I asked “Mr Lanier are you in any of these photos?” He pointed to the picture of the group of men. I then asked which one of the men was he and he said in great humor “the handsome one.” We both laughed for quite sometime. I replied “ I can definitely see that.” Mr Lanier had the most beautiful and groomed head of hair I had ever seen. Shortly after we went to the second floor and sat in the courtyard and he then shared some of his life with me. Yesterday I went to the hospital to visit to be told of his passing. To the family he was an awesome man ..my thoughts and prayers are with the family.Kim Danner - March 2 at 10:33 PM
