MY DEEPEST AND MOST SINCERE CONDOLENCES GO TO THE ENTIRE WILLEY FAMILY FOR YOUR LOSS! LYSLE WILL SURELY BE REMEMBERED AND FOREVER MISSED FOR SURE. HE WAS A VERY HARD WORKING ENERGETIC MAN FOR MANY YEARS AND WAS ADMIRED BY MANY. SOME OF MY FONDEST MEMORIES OF LYSLE WERE THE FISHING ADVENTURES AT MY PARENTS' HOUSE, THE COOKOUTS, AND MOST DEFINITELY THE TIMES LYSLE TOOK ME HORSEBACK RIDING! I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF LYSLE AS A BIG BROTHER. HE WILL BE IN MY THOUGHTS AND FOREVER IN MY HEART! LYSLE SPREAD YOUR ANGEL WINGS AND FLY TOWARDS THE LIGHT! ALL MY LOVE MY DEAR FRIEND!
