Sending my sympathy in the loss of Lyle. He farmed next to us in Loretta township and knew him thru Edna E.

I am so glad that I was able to visit Lyle in the last weeks. He passed away two weeks after my mom, Ardyce Dahl. He and Pauline used to chum around with my parents... back in the day. They had such fun together and Lyle and Pauline frequented my mother's dinner table many times. He loved my mom's cooking. I always enjoyed visiting with Lyle. He was mild mannered and would always ask how I was doing as well as all my siblings. He always cared about others. Mom cared very much about Lyle and was so concerned when he got sick. They visited several times in the last couple of years. Now Lyle is up in Heaven with Ardyce & Orphie. I'm sure he's telling dad all about the big fancy tractors. Will miss you and think of you often. Cindy
