    Lloyd was a good friend and always had time to converse with you. He was a welcome participant in our Lutheran Church activities (mexican dinner and apple pie purchases) Lloyd was dedicated to his
    Lord and Savior and wasn't afraid to mention it. We will miss him.

    Our sadness right now will only be replaced by the delight we had in him. We will each remember him to the end of our own days. Much love and sympathy to all my cousins and I am sorry I could not get

    Lloyd will greatly be missed. Always a smile and a little chuckle. Was always more concerned about others than himself. God Bless You.
