  1. Sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing, Jackie and Family. Enjoyed him and respected his service for the Lord at TBC. Prayers are with you all. Alan and Lisa McArthur.

  2. We started work on the same day at Norfolf & Southern(it was then Norfolk & Western) . He’ll be missed by all .

  3. Uncle Lloyd came down the road to help us a few months back. He came down the interstate just the short way to reach us, the wrong way like he owned the road, made us chuckle. Man, am I glad that trailer tire blew, I hadn't seen him in a while. God works in mysterious ways, the tire blew out right at the Harristown exit. Even though I didn't see him and Aunt Jackie that much, I think of them often and say Hi every time we pass the Harristown exit going down home. Rest in peace Uncle Lloyd, I'm sure you were happy to see Little Lloyd.

    I love you Aunt Jackie and if there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to call me. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you find peace and comfort in the coming days and weeks.
