    The first time that I met Bob (and Lana) is when I purchased their home on Aurelius Rd. in Holt, back in April of 2012.

    Such a sweet couple and Bob was so kind and helpful answering all of my questions about the home. Especially when it was time for me to open and close the pool for my first time.

    He was so sweet to come over and helped me from beginning to end …
    “This might not be the way other people do it, but it is the way I do it … ” he would tell me with each step. I listened closely to his every word and took notes. I still have that notebook and have referred it each time that I open and close my pool. Scribbled across the top, it says
    ” BOB’s WAY”.

    The best thing about owning that home, is that no matter who I talk to about “where” I live, EVERYBODY knows Bob and / or Lana or SOMEONE that lived / grew up in that house. Then they would almost always follow up with a “pool” story. It seems that the Lanes maintained a home that created many memories for many to cherish.

    People have asked me, “why do you still have that big ” L ” on your garage?” I have replied each time, “To honor the LANES, the home, and all of the memories that came with it”.

    It remains there today and always will until I no longer own my home … RIP Bob, you will be missed by many.
