So sorry to read of Lanny's passing. My first thought was "there goes another icon of Brier Hill/Morristown." He was one of those people that you knew would be there if help were needed, who was a loyal friend to many, and who was never afraid to express his opinion to those who displeased him by their words or actions. My sympathy and prayers go to all his friends and relatives. Lois & Ken
