I just received my current newsletter of Semper Fidelis. MGySgt Norman G. Lytle name appeared. I knew the time would come, I just did not know when. My wife and I knew him and his past wife Gay Florence while stationed at Cherry Point, NC. They took us under their wings while we were new to the Marine Corps. We have spoke often about them and have many great memories! He was a good man to us Marines! To this day, I can still fell the punch in my right arm after he "pinned" on my Corporal stripes! Semper Fidelis and Gratias Ago Tibi Pro Memoria.

Mr Lytle will never be forgotten. I will treasure my memories of him and offer his family my condolences.

Mr. Lytle came in the chemo room with a smile in his face. He was always ready to talk to me about Japan and teach me some words in Japanese. We loved talking about katanas and the Japanese history. He was always very patient with us. I'm truly going to miss my friend and I will forever treasure his memory. Rest in peace my angel

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Uncle Norma was the last of his generation, preceded by Uncle Truman, Uncle Dean, Uncle Jack, Uncle Delane and Mom. Memories of my childhood have flashed back to when he and Aunt Gay married. She was as beautiful as Jackie Kennedy....and he so handsome...it was like a fairy tale to a young girl like me.

Love to all,

Candy
