    Yes our reunion in 2011 was very special, even though his best friend Ron Willut had to literally kidnap him so he would come. But that day, he was happy to be there and I know he felt as we did that special bond that the St. Frances gang shared.

    It was so good to see your smile Lyle!!!

    May your family find comfort in knowing he was loved by all us who grew up with him at St. Frances.

    Yes, Lyle you were special, kind and a good friend and you will truly be missed, but never forgotten.
