Beloved son of Angela Angie Lee Watkins Goodwin and George Merrill, Adored brother of Landen.

Lane courageously battled Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma for two years and seven months.

It's very hard to understand
Why you died so young.
You had so much to live for
And was loved by everyone.

But we know God has a purpose
And a plan for each of us.
We know He loves His children,
And in Him we put all trust.

Although our hearts are broken,
We know you're in His care.
Your memory will remain alive
Until we join you there
~R. Tranmer
