My dearest condolences to all Lance's family. At the beginning of Lance's Mortgage Business with PNC we did extensive business together at Hedges Real Estate and I admired and respected him greatly ever since. He was so talented, honest and hard working. Unfortunately, I did not see enough of Lance over the past 10 years, until just a couple weeks ago. Peace and love all. Sincerely, Scott Hedges and the whole Hedges Family

I will be praying for comfort for all of Lance's family members. My favorite scripture in times like this is 2 Corinthians 1:2 to 5, it meant so much to me when I suffered the loss of a beloved granddaughter 14 months ago. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our troubles, so that we may comfort those who experience the same sorrows. May God Bless each of you and give you peace.
