  1. Eryn Crews says:

    As I said on Facebook, Lyle’s was one of my favorite faces to see at Grace when I attended, and later when I would be home in Ohio to visit. His voice was so soothing and his care and concern for my life were so genuine. I know he was part of a group of really special people who supported me and prayed without ceasing while I was in the hospital for months with a brain injury- and he continued to pray for me as I healed. That has touched my heart and I will cherish that. Thank you.

  2. Dennis Heritage says:

    Lyle was a very genuine man with a good heart, and he loved the Lord with all his heart. He and his wife Vera prayed fervently for my older brother, when he was seriously sick with cancer. He was always a friend to me. Tonight in my prayers, I thanked the Lord for his life and for the hope we have in Christ that one day we shall see him again in Heaven.
