I went to school with Lloyd in Decatur. For some reason , about 6th grade, he had a crush on me. I was a Safety Patrol at the main four corners in Decatur. One day he brought me a wooden ring he crafted himself. I still have it. That would have been about 1965. He was a very nice guy. My condolences.

"Did you ever know that you're my hero, and everything I would like to be? I can fly higher then an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings" The road traveled has been long, but you took the high road, went down it with pride, and always had that smile, telling us that what ever God had in store for you, would be ok Thank You for always being "our" big bother, for showing it with action not words. This world we live will never be the same, knowing your at peace is what keep us going fly high, yet always stay close enough to watch over us We Love You and will forever miss you Love Always Sandy
