BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Matt and Melissa Graves set up a foundation in honor of their son Lane who was drowned by an alligator at a lake in Walt Disney World Orlando.
The parents released this statement on the Omaha Gives! website:
After the tragic loss of our beloved 2-year-old son, Lane Thomas, we have created the Lane Thomas Foundation to honor his memory. Losing Lane has broken our hearts in the worst possible way. While there is no way to mend our hearts, we can do good work in his honor.
If you would like to honor Lane, donations are being accepted on behalf of the Lane Thomas Foundation at the Omaha Community Foundation. We will use these funds to make direct donations to various charitable organizations. 100% of all donations will be received by the charitable cause.
We thank you for helping us create a lasting legacy for our son.
