Not sure what to say?

I had the good fortune to meet Jack in 2014, we spent a day sailing on opening day of the season. What a sailor! I began to learn of the Tuskegee Airmen that day, and I have continued to research these extraordinary aviators. Mr Lyle was an incredible person to talk to, a beautiful soul. Im lucky to have met a real American hero. God bless his spirit, sending love and prayers to his family. I wanted to post this as I just watched a movie on the Airmen and wanted to let the family know, I will...

A hero to us all especially his lovely wife Eunice. He had such a great sense of humor as well. I am so glad to have been in his presence and shared space along with my young grandson. Not only are the ancestors proud but so are Mr. Lyles descendants. Gone but never to be forgotten.

Thank you. God Bless your soul!

Charle snd I loved sailing with Jack. He was full of life, honest and true to his friends. Eunice, my thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope you find peace in remembering all the great times you had.

I don't know if Jack Lyles is the same Lyles my family has been search for over the years. I have posted a photo of my Grand Uncle Jack Lyles on Face Book. All I know he went into the Army during World War II and the family never heard from him until this publication was shown.
