Thank you for taking such tender care of all my mother's arrangements. The yellow rose you placed in her viewing room was a very special touch. It showed us you listened and truly cared.

Ed and his staff go above e and beyond ! First my mother’s funeral in 2017 he and his staff treated us as family and did know all of my family . Everything was perfect for her in every way. Then , my aunts passing this January they took my worries , concerns and showed me that there is still kindness in this world as well as compassion. I could never repay them for what they all have done for me. To my surprise , they surpassed all that again today ! As it being my aunts birthday today I got a message from Ed and his staff that they are honoring her birthday as well and asked if there was anything they could do, I am in tears my faith in people has been restored , this kind of kindness will never be forgotten . Thank you Thank you! From the bottom of my heart , God Bless you all

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.

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

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"!
