    fargo ndWe were sad to read the news of Lyle’s death. We lost touch with him over the years, but back in the 1980’s our families were friends. His daughters babysat for us, we went to many sporting events together. He had such a nice family and we certainly enjoyed knowing them all. We want to send our sympathies to everyone in the family. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
