Dear Uncle Lance, Hunting with you was super fun! The cell phone that you gave me I got working Saturday. The plans we had together, I will do. Thank you for showing me how to use a knife, gun, and other things. Brielle and I are going to take really good care of Lexi! You were like a second dad to me. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful uncle and always being there for family and me.

Thank you for being there for us. You are a great uncle; you would always tease me about my red hair and show me cool tricks like how to use the gap in my two front teeth as a water gun.:) You always helped me fix my bikes and other things I had. Whenever I was sad, you always made me laugh and smile with a joke or a random fact you knew. I love you Uncle Lance, you are a great uncle!

Dear Uncle Lance, I donít know what I will do with out you. Who else is going to teach the boys to be nice to me? Iíll make sure to give Lexi a walk on the nature trail for you, and Iíll bring her over to play with Knuckles. Iím also going to miss wrestling with you, and how you would always tease me about boys. I love you so much! I hope you enjoy hunting up there in heaven with Snapper, Kessler, and Abby.

LanceÖIíll always remember that a bad day hunting is always better then a great day at work. Thanks for being my mentor and rock. Life will never be the same without you.

Love Marek, Mackenzie, Malory and Mason.
