For over 37 years a man who may share nothing other than your name has been a part of my life until his passing a couple months ago. The husband of my mom’s best friend, Lyle always had a twinkle in his eye, and even as a little girl I was struck by his sense of humor and warmth. He was a great man not only to his family but also to mine, particularly when times were tough. I’d like to think that you share more than just a name, which is why in loving memory of Lyle and with a grateful heart I send this Random Note of Gratitude to you. For your own goodness, the for the ways in which you have been constant, and for simply being you and sharing that with those in your life, I would like to say thank you! You being you, particularly in all those small little ways that seem so insignificant, is a beautiful gift that adds up to a life well lived.
