Lloyd was not just a co-worker but a friend. I was able to tell Lloyd in person
and not just in dead. I enjoyed knowing Lloyd for about 25 years.

Dear Cheryl, Lisa and family, We would have loved to get to meet Lloyd as we
know he's been a special good man on Earth. We're talking through our
daughter's feelings. She told us once that saying goodbye to Lloyd was the
hardest farewell For her. We're sure his soul will be around taking care of the
ones he loved. We've told Ane that now he's turned into her Guardian angel.
Love from the bottom of our heart to you.
