    Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lyle. May words of encouragement uplift your spirit at this time. In the difficult days to come may the many wonderful memories of Lyle’s life give you comfort. Something we have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28 “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out “. May you find hope and peace though God Jehovah’s promise of a resurrection.

    We mourn with you in the loss of Lyle. He was a fun older cousin of mine who brought joy to all of us during the many family gatherings we had over the years sharing the Joys and sorrows of life.
    May God’s Peace rest in your hearts as you remember him.
