    Prayers for Lance's family. I remember him as always thinking of others and being so humble in his service to others. He lived by the golden rule and I am so thankful that I got to work with him for many years. May God bless and comfort his family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time of loss. I worked with Lance at Brookhaven Funeral Home and he was so much fun to be around, always laughing and telling jokes...never a dull moment around him. He always had a smile and would brighten your day. He will be greatly missed.

    Mr. Curtis was a very dedicated worker. I will miss the jokes and how he lifted our spirits everyday. We would ask "How are you doing today Mr.Curtis?" He would always reply.. "I never had it so good." He never complained!
    My love goes out to his wife and family.

    To the Smith family - I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Lance. I had the privilege to recruit Lance and serve as his baseball coach at Mississippi College. I will always remember him for his competitive nature and desire to win. He was an ultimate team player and most important a really good person.

    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. The most rewarding thing in coaching and teaching is association with young men like Lance.

    I'm so sorry to hear of Lance's passing. I remember him always having a great smile on. He had a way of making me always feel light hearted and comfortable around him. My heart goes out to Khristy and her girls and his son in law and grandson. Lance will always have a special place in my heart.

    I knew Lance when he worked for Brookhaven Funeral Home. He was an asset to his employer and a friend to my husband and me. We owned a flower shop and were blessed to spend some quality time with him.
    My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
    May God bless you all.

    Very sorry for your loss. Lance was such a kind friendly man. His smile could light up a room. I remember him and Gil laughing at Gil's jokes. Lance was a credit to his profession.
    May God give you peace.

    Our church family has suffered a great loss of one of our most loved members. He was my absolute favorite Branch President. Wayne and I really came to know and love Lance. I am sorry for our loss and our sympathy and love go out to Kristie and the girls and Mr Curtis and Lisa and all extended family.
