I just learned of your Mom’s passing. She was a delightful lady who was great friend of our family for so many years! She had a wonderful smile and a great laugh and always went out of her way to say hello whenever we were visiting my dad (Alfred Barc) at his church. My sympathies to all of you!

Thinking of Lyla fondly ... she will be missed! In the short time I was blessed to meet her... she brightened my day each visit. She was generous, kind and thoughtful. Most of all, she expressed deep love for her family, friends and church. Above all else she was very proud of her children, grand kids and great grand kids. She will remain close to them throughout eternity. HUGS AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY.
