    Lloyd was a great example of a man of integrity and faith. His love for Jesus was true and seen by all who knew him. He always had a word of encouragement for me. I will miss him. I am grateful for the salvation we share in Christ and the hope of heaven where we will see our friend again.
    With sadness and joy,

    My heartfelt condolences to you and yours. It’s truly difficult to give up the best of the best. My Dad was one of those too. May they meet and embrace in Heaven to sing in His heavenly choir. 💔

    I will always hold dear my most favorite memory of LC. More than 30 years ago he would pretend to be Santa Claus on the telephone, telling the kids that he would be visiting them one day early because it was getting very difficult to get everything done on Christmas Eve.

    I’m not sure who enjoyed that call more, the kids or LC!

    Dear LC:

    Thank you for your friendship! I will surely miss you and knowing that you were always close.

    Your hugs were wonderful and helped me many times. You were like a brother an you were. A brother in Christ.

    My prayers go out to Lisa, Rhonda, Amy, Darlene, Joan and ALL of grands, greats, nephews, nieces and other relatives. Also, prayers for Bellshire Assembly, where LC choose to be a part of the family. Such a pleasure and blessing to have had the honor to worship God together.

    Kiss all our family and friends in Heaven. Tell them to look out we are raring to see them again. ❤️
