He'll will wipe
away every tear
from their eyes,
and death shall
be no more,
there be mourning,
nor crying, nor pain anymore for the
former things have passed away#jarrodlyle pic.twitter.com/c3TSzMqtkD

It is through a river of tears I say goodbye to my friend Jarrod Lyle. A wonderful father, friend and golfer. Quick with a joke, didn’t mind a beer, and just a pure joy to be around every day. Miss you mate. RIP
