Kyle always had a twinkle in his eyes and never knew a stranger. He was also full of wisdom that if you could figure out the riddles you would have a knowledge beyond your means. He shared several stories about when he was younger which I have remembered fondly. Lyle would give his sort off his back to a perfect stranger if he thought it would help them. I was witness to several act of charity and kindness answer participated in a few. Because of which I realized that money isn't what make u rich family and good friends are worth way more than any dollar amount you could ever have. Lyles voice will be missed by my family as the children he knew he treated like his own he loved children and putting smiles on there faces. God speed my friend. Say hello to a few family members for me. I'll see you again when its my time. Until then we love and miss you with heavy hearts we say goodbye. But we know your with those friends and family you love now and no longer will you be hungry or thirsty. Save us seat on the bus and enjoy the palace of heaven.
