  1. I am saddened to hear of Lloyd’s passing but will remember fondly the visits to his home when we would share such wonderful conversations. We would get into such a laughing mode that I was afraid he might fall out of his easy chair and he would have to do his famous knee-slapping motion to relieve some of that pent up laughter… you know, the kind that comes from deep within your gut. Lloyd, I will miss you and the great hugs I got every time I saw you!! You were someone very special…. love, Kristen
