Uncle Lloyd was a blessing to many people in life and he will truly be missed. Uncle Lloyd and Aunt Edna recently attended a pre-wedding party for my daughter and a birthday party for my mom even though it was a struggle to get there. He loved some corned herrings and I am so glad I got to cook for him one more time before he passed away. To aunt Edna, we love you and will be praying for peace and comfort.

Uncle Lloyd you can rest in peace now in the arms of your Savior. You will be greatly missed. You and Aunt Edna were a blessing to a lot of people including myself. I remember as a child when y’all would come over to granddaddies house. Y’all were just like Dick Clark never ageing. LOL I remember telling y’all I wanted some of that water y’all were drinking. Everyone could tell that you and Aunt Edna really loved one another and were the best of friends. You will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Love, Tommy

Lloyd was a very fine gentleman. He always had a kind and friendly way of treating people. He enjoyed sharing from his garden and the last time I saw him, he gave me a watermelon.
My love and prayers go out to Edna and his family and friends. May God bless and comfort you.
