Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Lane Tollett who was killed in action on April 28, 2007, Baghdad, Iraq.  Lane was a loving son, brother, nephew and cousin of a very close family.  He was also a lasting friend to many, many more.  

Lane was the kind of person that if you had the pleasure of meeting, you would never forget.  He was geniune, down to earth and had one of the sweetest, deepest voices a man could ask for.  He was the epitome of "cool", and he will be missed far beyond any of our comprehension.  Simply, if you knew Lane Tollett, you were a better person for it.

Please post pictures, video & comments about Lane.  This website is permanent and your contributions to it will remain for eternity. 



Thank you to everyone who donated their time, effort , and contributions to the Scoreboard Memorial that was dedicated on September 28, 2007 at Elyria Catholic's Homecoming Game.




Remember and honor Lane by wearing an engraved memorial bracelet!  These bracelets are for men and women both and are very nice in person!  Not only will you be showing your support for Lane but also for charities that support the families of Victims of Terrorism and Military Casualties fighting the war on Terrorism.  Just click on the link below, select KIA on the black toolbar then click on Iraqi Freedom.  Lastly, click on S-U to find Lane's name.

My dearest Lane, 40 years ago today, I held a big beautiful baby boy. Bald then too, but perfect in my eyes. I wondered what you would be doing at 30-40 years old. What would you become? What would you look like (besides handsome)? Well, you turned o...  Continue >>
