Dear Diane, I am so sorry. I loved Lyman. I respected him as a lineman , a man and as a friend. He was always smiling and never a bad word about anyone. I don't know if you remember me , I was so happy when you guys were married. I always wished I could have been more like Lyman. The world is darker without him. Please take care. with regret, Anthony " DOC " De Pietro
