Fw: [oregon56] Lyle & flowers
- I saw Lyle Friday night, Saturday afternoon when the '56 class met with Ronnie Meyer at the 275 Grill, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon at the cemetery services for Memorial Day.Judy----- Original Message -----From: Erle RichardsSent: Tuesday, May 31, 2011 10:18 PMSubject: Re: [oregon56] Lyle & flowersJeanieIt is wonderful that you and Martha are taking the lead in doing this. Thank you both so much for doing this.Lyle's obit can be viewed at http://www.chamberlainfuneral.com/Derr---obituary.htmlAs I had mentioned in an earlier message, I had always figured Lyle as being indestructible. I guess I concur with you in that I figured he'd always be around. The only blessing in his passing is that it happened as only he would have wanted ... Git her done! Just over the weekend he related to me a story about a job where the customer had a locked entrance, so being impatient, he just used bolt cutters to cut the padlock so he could get to work.Erle----- Original Message -----From: Kay Jean PierpointSent: Tuesday, May 31, 2011 5:58 PMSubject: [oregon56] Lyle & flowers
Martha & I have discussed flowers for Lyles service. Would everyone be agreeable to sending $10.00 to Martha Meyer? She has agreed to collect money and order flowers from a florist in Savannah who does lovely arrangements. A $100 hanging spray of red roses, baby breath & greenery would make up very nicely which is what I had done for my aunt. Any amount of money left over could be used as a reserve flower fund. Later if more money is needed, we can pitch in again.
Marthas address is: 2818 Cronkite
St. Joseph , MO 64506
I am still trying to absorb what happened to Lyle. He was so full of life. I thought hed always be around.
