Although I only got to know Lloyd at the end of his life, he impressed me greatly with his kindness and strength. Even in his final days, he was concerned for others more than himself. Blessings to Laura, Mark, and the entire family as you grieve his loss and remember his legacy.

Looking at the river this morning, it is so peaceful. I pray peace for your family. Knowing fully that he is in Gods hands will bring comfort. But I cannot imagine the loss your heart feels. No one can ever replace a loving, supportive, adoring father in the heart of a daughter. Love you Laura. Remember to rake care of yourself as you surely are taking care of everything and everyone else, as is your way.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We grieve alongside our dear friend Laura (Mark). A daughter who loved her dad (Lloyd). Lloyd had great wisdom when sharing the Bible. He could create some clever quotes.! His dry sense of humor was always a joy to brighten the day! May his future generations continue his Christian beliefs and never forget the sweet & gentle man he was!
