Lance, age 51, finally found peace and freedom when he joined his mother and father on May 08, 2007. We will all miss his free spirit and ever-present sense of humor. He had a knack for making people laugh — whether intentionally or by accident.
He was always a hard worker and enjoyed fixing things for anyone who needed it. You could always call on him for a helping hand. He lived in a beautiful cabin that was nestled right up to nature. It was the perfect place to go when you needed to get away from things, or just wanted to enjoy the mountain scenery. And Lance was always eager to entertain guests. We all lost something special that day.
Lance is survived by his brothers: Craig (Rosemary) and Kim (Mickey); his sisters: Debbie Rigby, Karen Dall, and Cindy Dials (Darren); his son Jason; and his two grandchildren: Tanner and Arianah. He was preceded in death by his mother and father Howard and Ardell VanderMeyden.
"I Did Not Die
Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die."
