    Uncle Lloyd……you will be so missed but I will always keep my special memories of my childhood at the “farm”……and also I have a reminder on my forehead of our little trip to town in the car when I fell on the pail of liver……..I was so happy to be able to spend some time with you before you left us.

    Uncle Lloyd, Let your Spirit soar! Being home with God and encompassed by his unconditional LOVE and PEACE must be very JOYUS. However, you were and are loved by so many. We will miss you deeply. One of my favorite childhood memories is being on the farm with all the sheep. You would fix me a bottle so I could feed the lambs. To this day I still love lambs. I also remember staying with you and Gloria and helping you hay..driving the tractor and following you all around the farm. Thank you for your love.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. When I lost my Dad a wise family friend told me, “Death is never a tragedy. It is always a gift.” May this comfort you as it did me. Turn to your friends in the days ahead for comfort and support as they are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

    Lloyd, I was privileged to join your class as a 7th grader at Ogilvie Consolidated District No. 3. Unfortuneately no special memories come to mind beyond that you were a good looking blond-haired guy. My out-of-school interests drew me toward Brunswick and Immanuel Lutheran church while yours were Ogilvie-centered and at the UMC. After all these years it’s good to be filled in with the outlines of your life as given in the obituary and by what others are saying who have known you through the years. The large number of caring people gathered to celebrate your life speaks of a respected and honorable community presence, an honored reputation. May God’s abundant and all-suffient Grace bless your memory, and affirm our sympathy to all of your bereaved family and friends!
