SQL 2008 - Group Customer Name with Multi-Value in single column

I have a MS SQL view that shows customer names and state - with multiple lines of data of a value named LOT. I wish to combine all the LOT into a single column for each Customer.

Example: (this is sample of my existing SQL View.

CustomerA       CA         Lot123
CustomerA       CA         Lot456
CustomerA       CA         Lot789
CusomterZ        AZ         Lot543
CustomerZ        AZ         Lot919
CustomerV        VA        Lot777

This is what I was trying to get in my view:
CustomerA       CA         Lot123, Lot456, Lot789
CusomterZ        AZ         Lot543, Lot 919
CustomerV        VA        Lot777

This is my statement (that gives all values)

The temp table was just to show it works as a test case.

If you have a complex query that produces the results you posted, then use a Common Table Expression (CTE):

With your_original_query as (
...your query...
SELECT   O.CustomerName ,
         O.StateCode ,
         STUFF((   SELECT   ', ' + I.LotCode
                   FROM     your_original_query I
                   WHERE    I.CustomerName = O.CustomerName
                            AND I.StateCode = O.StateCode
                   ORDER BY I.LotCode
                   FOR XML PATH(''), TYPE ).value('.', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)') ,
               1 ,
               2 ,
               '') AS LotText
FROM     your_original_query O
GROUP BY O.CustomerName ,
