  4. Dear Donna , Susan and family..
    Al and I would like to send our sympathy, thoughts and prayers to you in the loss of Lloyd , Friend and classmate of Lois.
    We have so many fun and wonderful memories of Lloyd. He was a dear classmate that we all loved and had fun with at Chadron HIgh School in Nebraska and at the reunions that Lois’ class had through the years. Both Al and I have so much fun remembering the fun times we had with Lloyd, Donna and the other classmates.

    We are so pleased that he knew the Lord, and thus we shall all be together in Heaven .

  6. Donna and Family,

    Thoughts and memories pour over me…the years of bridge clubs, neighborhood events, and Mom’s special fondness for all of you. Prayers and sincere wishes are being sent.

  7. Dear Donna, Susan, and David,
    It is with heavy heart that I read of Lloyd’s passing. He was a friend and classmate from the time we were in kindergarten until our Class Reunion you attended.
    His testimony to our Lord and Savior was always evident and his service to others memorable.
    May our Lord give you great peace and comfort.
    Love and Blessings,
    Harla Jean

  8. Donna: My sincere condolences. Lloyd was a good man and will be missed. But find joy in knowing that he has entered the kingdom of eternal life and lives on. I’m certain Joe has greeted him (as well as all his many other friends who have already left this earthly plain.) Be good to yourself and have trust and faith.

  9. Dear Donna, Susan and family,
    Our hearts are heavy with the loss of Lloyd. He was a wonderful man–man of God–great Christian role model–one who loved his family.
    We have many fond memories of times when we shared our extended church family at Central Christian. We have missed you since you left Pueblo.
    We send our love, prayers and sympathy. Annette & Richard

  10. We were saddened to learn about Lloyd\’s passing. His was a life filled with faith, love, kindness, and laughter and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Our prayers are with you and your family.

  11. Cousins don’t always get to know each other as well as they should. Reading about Lloyd and his passion for the spiritual needs of others, his love of song and good humor makes me feel a closer kinship.
