  3. What a small world! I so loved Lanie. I worked with her at Pine City Lsunderers & Cleaners. What a spitfire. She made it not seem so bad working there. I knew Terry was her daughter, but did not know you, Jim, was her son. What a sweet lady. May you find comfort in knowing she touched many lives with her devious smile and quick wit. Rest In Peace, Lanie.
