We are very sorry for your loss; our prayers are with you and your family. Mr. Lloyd was an impressive man from the obituary.

Though I know that this is a difficult time for your family, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word, the Bible. John 5 : 28, 29 and Revelation 21: 3, 4 offer us the hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus' kingdom rule, we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.
