Carole LaneI remember my God Father, Homer , when he helped me through a difficult time. Homer rescued my son and I from a tornado . What a gallant, humble man. Took us in to Elaine and Homers home. There , we were comforted, and felt safe. We will always remember him for his compassion, and caring. Homer always had a sparkle in his eye, wanting to do good which was successful in many ways. My condolences to Elaine , my God Mother, who I cherish deeply. Also to rest of family and the awesome children, that Homer and Elaine raised, with excellent guidance, and love. Your family is truly amazing! Love, Carole (Shaw) Lane.
