I am deeply sorry for your lost, I love Aunt Lyle she was like a second momma too me. She's in heaven with Momma now, but will be dearly missed.

Rest in peace Aunt Lyle! You will be truly missed! Every time I saw you and we talked I cried like a baby because you looked and sounded so much like mommy, (Jackie Ratliff). She loved you dearly and I’m sure she was one of many who welcomed you into heaven with open arms! ❤️
