  1. Lyle and Beth were wonderful people… I unfortunately was the rotten neighbor kid. Always enjoyed The Markley family though and my parents appreciated them deeply for being the best neighbors you could ever hope to have. My Dad and Lyle talked often in the front yard Spring to Fall and Lyles pipe always permeated the air with a sweet aroma. I was always impressed with Lyles craftsmanship and once when I really needed his help he made something for me. Lyle was a great guy and Beth was very sweet and soft spoken. Will always remember them and look forward to seeing them again upstairs… I know they are there.

  2. Dear Family
