In Fond Memory

Lane Benzel Dreher

March 3, 1934 – October 7, 2017

 

It is with saddened hearts we notify you of such a great loss.

 

Lane Dreher has been with the club for many years. He became a Life Member in 2015. Lane constantly volunteered so much of his time to this club. Whether it was building wood projects, swinger pits, sitting on the board, improving the grounds, he was always there to get the job done. Through it all, his infectious smile never left his face. Everywhere you look, you can see Lane's presence.

 

Lane was a God fearing man, devoted husband to his beautiful wife Lynda and devoted father to his 4 wonderful children, Daniel Dreher, Diane Grayson, Kim Pearson and Rob Dreher. Lane also volunteered at Church functions and camp grounds throughout the summers. The list goes on…

 

Lane, you are sorely missed. God blessed us with your friendship. Thank you for the memories.

This poem is dedicated to Lane...Lane lived “The Dash.”

 The Dash by Linda Ellis

 

 I read of a man who stood to speak

At the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on his tombstone

From the beginning to the end.

 He noted that first came his date of his birth

And spoke the following date with tears,

 But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash between those years.

 For that dash represents all the time

That he spent alive on earth.

 And now only those who loved him

Know what that little line is worth.

 For it matters not how much we own;

The cars, the house, the cash,

 What matters is how we live and love

And how we spend our dash.

 So think about this long and hard.

Are there things you’d like to change?

 For you never know how much time is left,

That can still be rearranged.

 If we could just slow down enough

To consider what’s true and real

 And always try to understand

The way other people feel.

 And be less quick to anger,

And show appreciation more

 And love the people in our lives

Like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,

And more often wear a smile

 Remembering that this special dash

Might only last a little while.

 So, when your eulogy is being read

With your life’s actions to rehash

 Would you be proud of the things they say

About how you spent your dash?
