|Tuskegee Airmen Motto: "All for One"|
"Remembering you today on Veterans Day, and the service you and the other members of the "Red Tails" who gave so much to the service of our Country."
"Today would have been your 93rd birthday. Today, Leslie would have been calling you and probably surprising you with a visit there in Cleveland. Remembering and never forgetting you, love from all your family."
"Today is the 23rd anniversary of your passing. Remembering you, and honoring the service you made to our Country. "Eternal rest grant him Oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.""
"I want to honor Earl Lane in a book I'm writing now and would like to hear from anyone who'd like to help.

"Today would have been Aunt Dorothy's birthday, also I would be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary. I'm thinking of her today and my late husband. Remembering you and Leslie also."
"Today we honor all you veterans. I added several new pictures to your memorial page, wish you were here so you could tell me about them. Wish Leslie were here also."
"Today I added the names of four Airmen who have recently passed. Lt. Col. Luke J. Weathers, age 90, October 15, 1912; George Hickman; Lt. Col. Herbert Carter, age 95; and Brew Hickman, age 97. Mr. Hickman received the Congressional Gold Medal several years after the other airmen ~ his wife was instrumental in him finally getting his medal."
"Although I never met you, I heard so many great things about you. Thank you for all that you did for our country. I know that you are truly missed."
"Today is the 22nd anniversary of your passing. I remember it like it was yesterday, because I had spoken to Leslie on the 25th to tell her that my husband had passed and she said she would be at the funeral. However, two days later, June 27th, she called me back to say that you had just passed. Rest in peace Uncle Earl. You will be forever in my heart."
"Remembering you on Memorial Day, and everyday and to say thank-you Uncle Earl for your service to our Country, and to OUR people. Thank-you also to all the Tuskegee Airmen."
"Wish I could have spent more time with you. As a retired army officer
we share much in common. I think of leslie often and when I do , you are always on my mind. Thanks so much for your service to our country.
Lt.Col.Robert J. Booth (USA Retired)"
"The saying, "youth is wasted on the young," is so true. I'm sorry I missed all the opportunities we could have had talking about your experiences during the war. Young people just take it for granted that our loved ones will be with us forever. All I can say is that you exemplified the term "an officer and a gentleman," as well as wonderful father to Leslie, and uncle to me. Miss U!!"
