Our beloved cousin, Martha Owen Thatcher, surrounded by those that loved her dearly, transitioned from her mortal body into the presence of Jesus on August 21, 2019. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation and heartfelt gratitude to Monica Adkins, Gene Land and James Samples at Lane Funeral Home. They were there for us every step of the way and orchestrated the visitation and funeral at First Centenary UMC and out of town interment in Martha's hometown of Sweetwater, TN with professionalism, dignity and respect.
A very special thank you to Gene Land, who was persistent in visiting and talking with Martha when she was not as ill, to make sure he clearly understood what her preferences and desires were for the visitation and funeral. He then made sure those were honored and we are very grateful to him for that. Gene has been a trusted staff member of Lane Funeral Home for many years and demonstrated the same level of professionalism with the funeral arrangements for Greg's parents.
Lane Funeral Home, During a time like this we realize how much our family and friends really mean to us. Your expression of sympathy will always be remembered.
Thank you Albert for all your help. The flowers are beautiful.
Thank you for the beautiful rose arrangement you placed by Mother's guest book. Thank you too for the ham given to our family. You have a beautiful facility and made us comfortable and welcome while there. A special thanks to Ed and Gene, personal friends of our parents and now new friends, George and Tammy, who helped us with arrangements.
Thank you to everyone there at the funeral home in helping with Helen Price's funeral. The visitation and actual service was so nice and we appreciate your attending to all our needs at that time. The single white rose was beautiful also.
Thank you for taking care of all in a professional and caring way! Thank you for the rose.
Dear "Friends at Lane", especially Steve and Gene. Thank you so much for helping our family thru this time. Your accomodating us was a comfort and peace in honoring our Dad. We appreciate having these special cards, album and other remembrances, too. Also, thank you for the beautiful rose, a special touch, a symbol of our "Barger" love. With sincere appreciation.
Bless you from the bottom of my oh-so-thankful heart. Your kindness was so thoughtful. May God bless each of you. Brad, you and Donna are our angels.

Dear Lane Funeral Home,
Thank you so much for the red rose you sent to my dad, James E. Patton's memorial service. That was so very thoughtful of your staff.
Brad and staff at Lane, thank you for the care and attention you showed our family during this hard time of saying temporarily good by to Dad. We were all so pleased with the receiving friends, funeral and graveside and felt Dad would have been too. Thank you for the red rose bud vase to express your sympathy.
Thank you for the beautiful flowers and for the service and support during our family's difficult days. Well Done!
Thank you so much for all your compassion and assistance with Rod's funeral. I'm not sure how I would have done it without you holding my hand. You are a true honor to your profession.
Thank you for everything you all did to make everything so much easier for us and for taking care of Nanny.
I just want to give a huge sincere thank you to Bradley. He went above and beyond to make sure my family was happy and taken care of.

I will recommend Lane Funeral Home, Ashland Terrace to anyone. Thank you!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all you did to make this most difficult time more bearable. Coming to the house to do the arrangements was such a relief.

You all are special to us! Thanks for the beautiful rose! You all are loved by us! May God bless you all!

Thank you all for your kind attentiveness during this difficult time. The flowers were beautiful and your thoughtfulness was much appreciated. God Bless You!
Thank you so much for helping us through this difficult time. You understood our humor and laughed with us when we needed it. I am sure you tell everyone those wonderful things but to us it meant everything.
Thank you for being fun and easy going through our mothers passing. You are appreciated.
We can't thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and help throughout the loss of our son. You all have been so kind and generous and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Dear Members of Lane Funeral Home, Thank you for the love and support you've shown us during the time of my Mom's recent passing. We really do appreciate all you've done for us.
I just want to say thank you for all you guys do and did. I was thinking today and thought about how hard your jobs really are, then I thought God knows who to place in each position there and knows what really needs to be said. I feel without God, your group would have a very hard time with the words to say to families. My Mickey always loved the staff and always had great things to say when he would come home after helping with a funeral and now I know first had how he felt. Please know that I thank God for you taking such good care of our family by making us a part of yours. You guys are the best, may God keep blessing your work and lives daily. Love in Christ, Judy Whitmire; Mausa Spangler Family; and Christy Thurman and Family
Thank you so much for the way you treated my mom and the rest of our family during the passing of Dad. You all went above and beyond our expectations, which made dealing with it all a little more bearable. Thank you again!
On behalf of the Evelyn Dalton family, I would like to take the opportunity to express our appreciation to the team at Lane Funeral Home for their assistance with the pre-arrangements that we made over a year ago and during the final arrangements and service for Evelyn Dalton this week. I would like to express our appreciation to t hose who worked relentlessly to ensure that not only were our family's requests and expectations met but they were committed to exceeding our expectations. They listened and responded promptly to our request, they were flexible to the needs of our family, they always presented themselves in professional manner while also being personable. May God bless and reward each of you for making a difference. Thank you.
The generosity and kindness expressed during the recent death of Ms. Pittman was greatly appreciated. What a blessing you were to her family and our ministry.

What an incredible surprise to receive my flowers from you all! Thank you so much for your kind expression of support. I was truly blessed and uplifted with the beauty of the flowers and touched by the sweet sentiment of God's love as shown through His servants. God truly uses each of you at Lane Funeral Home on Ashland Terrace to be His hands and feet to serve those who are hurting and heavy with grief. I am honored to share ministry with you and am blessed to call you friends! Through your thoughtful gesture, I received strength for my journey to recovery. Thank you!

Dear Ed and Staff Our sincere thanks for the many acts of kindness and sympathy during Virginia's long illness and death. We deeply acknowledge and appreciate it with gratitude. Virginia loved each of you and treasured your friendship and I know the feelings were mutual. Sincerely, Velma Mason for the Family
To each and every one at Lane Funeral Home, Just wanted to let you know how pleased my family was with each one there. We couldn't have asked for nicer people. Thank you for all your kind words. Mom looked beautiful, she would have been pleased how beautiful evrything was. Thank you God Bless Shirley Hawkins Family
Ed, I had to send you a special thank you. Paying everyone to be there was such a thing unheard of in this day and time. They are all special too. How can I thank you enough! Gathering all our stuff after the funeral and bringing to my house so we could go to the church dinner was way above and beyond. You had men (Bart & Gene and I think, George) come over the night Jerry died to help and comfort. I could go on and on. Everything was perfect and loving. I will always remember all your love and kindness. I will send anyone I can to Lane (Coulter's) because I love and believe in you and your great crew. Phyllis Miller and Family
To Ed and all of you at Lane or, as I've always called it, Coulter's Funeral Home: You have been a part of my life since I was a child and had to go to every funeral in the family. My Daddy and Moma's was hard, but my husband, Jerry's was the hardest. I can't begin to tell you how much I love and appreciate all you did. All of you were there and taking care of every need. Many things I didn't even think of and you were leading and taking care of it. Your heart was in every aspect and you left nothing undone. It was all perfect and Jerry would have been so pleased. No one really knows all that has to be done until you go through it. You are a special group. It is not just a business, it really is "from the heart"!
Thank you so much for being there for Monty and me when needed. You made it so easy to plan Mont's service because you knew Monty and out family. Your assistance at this diffult time was greatly appreciated.
Thank you for all you did in the funeral preparation, visitation and meetings following the death of my mother. The beautiful red rose at the sign-in table was a special touch as well. I greatly appreciate all of you, but especially Mike Kellar in how he handled everything both sympathetically and professionally. Many Thanks, Jane Varnell
Thank you so much for the additional memory folders and thank you cards which I requested from you, as well as the pictures of churck for our children. I appreciate all of the above so much. Please, relay my thanks to Tammy as well---she did a great job on those pictures.
