It is always a joy to be with someone we love when they are called to Heaven, a privilege you might say. Remember Footprints in the Sand...when things were the worst in our life, that is when there is only one set of footprints because God is graciously carrying us. God bless your whole family at this time, and rejoice that Orville is in the presence of God.

I am very saddened by the passing of my dear friend and mentor, Orville lyste. I know you all have been shaken by Orville's death, but remember he was a strong man of God and he is safely in the arms of Jesus in Heaven right now. I remember when Debbie first introduced me to Orville. We were dating at the time, and we stopped by his apartment in mayville. Needless to say, we clicked right away. I knew I had made a friend that day. To Mom (Yvonne), Lorraine, Debbie, Gary, David and the family; I share your grief in your loss. Heaven's gain is truly our loss. Orville was a dear man and we really will miss him.
