    To the Family. Our sympathy. When Jesus was on earth, he ‘cured every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity.’ Soon he will perform those miracles again, including the resurrection of our dear loved ones. Matthew 9:35; John 5:28

    Sweet, beautiful, and what a great sense of humor was my first impression when I met Mrs. Lytle. I knew then that Rita would always be the same, just like all the Lytle girls. Frances and Jim did a great job raising those girls and I will always love and respect them as my own family. I'm proud to say Frances has been my mother in law for 35 years.

    Last week we lost a wonderful lady that I have known since 1970. She was really special to me and always my biggest fan. She and her husband, Jim James Lytle, allowing me to come to their home and eventually become a part of their family. In 1975, Janet Lytle and we’re married with Francis and Jim’s permission. I continued to call them regularly along after Janet and I were separated and divorced. Every year. Still remember the phone number, probably the only number I actually still remember. France’s had six beautiful daughters all of which loved her and respected her. Rita Redmond, Mary Lytle Yasuhara Janet Lytle Machacek, Lillian Nunez Denise, and Renee. I was just back in Texas and got to see Francis and ‘Jim two separate times and I was so happy that God allowed me those moments. Rest In Peace Francis. I will love you forever and never forget you. Your son-in-law,
