I am deeply sorry to hear of Lyle’s death. My sadness is exceeded only by the fondness with which I member him. He taught me the personal meaning as well as the techniques of bonsai. I was looking forward to visiting with him during my upcoming holiday visit to Wheeling. I will miss him.

Please accept my sincere condolences on Lyle’s death.

Although I hadn’t seen him in years, he was a daily fixture in my life throughout my childhood. I’ll always remember him as a hard working and skilled leader who was quick to share his knowledge and guidance with others. He was a trusted friend to everyone in my family. My thoughts and prayers for everyone in the Flowers family.
