    I was so very sad to hear about Mr Lyle’s passing. I have such fond memories of him and his quirky sense of humor (pass the snoo). I felt so privileged to have been Dianne’s roommate because that meant that Mr. and Mrs. Lyle just tried to help take care of me which was a blessing for a 19yr old who was lonely and away from home for the first time. I loved listening to his stories. I even more loved trying to tell him a story because sometimes he didn’t quite hear it right and the outcomes were hilarious. He was an amazing man who has left a wonderful legacy in his children. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of grief.

Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. -Leo Buscaglia
