Reta and family: So sorry to hear the news of Lyle's passing. Dad was very fond of Lyle and spoke so highly of him! Their shared love of horses certainly was a topic of conversation! I'll always remember the day I went with Dad to your barn and 'adopted' a little kitten that had been dropped off. As Lyle said, it was too cute to be a barn cat! Our thoughts are with you all.

Above all, everyone would say that Lyle Rawn was a gentleman and projected that role model stature to everyone. The tremendous attendance to pay respect speaks for itself. There are few who can fill the shoes of all his special features, and he will not be forgotten.

Keith, John and I just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you during this time of loss. As we say to Taija and McKenna when someone we know passes - "no matter how good or bad the memories are, they are in our hearts forever and the more we talk about them the less it hurts....eventually."

Dear Rita and Family: Lyle will long be remembered by his neighbours and friends on "The Second". He was always on hand to help out in whatever way he could and the Earl Hunt family depended on the Rawns in many aspects of our lives, most especially for clearing the snow so we could get out in the winter. I'll be thinking of you lots in the coming days. Margaret.
