Not sure what to say?

It's so hard to grasp that Lloyd is gone; he'll forever be involved somewhere, somehow with softball in southern Illinois. I have fond memories of the years we all played together; looking forward to Thursday nights and weekend tournaments! I wouldn't have played for anyone else! The memories and friendships we formed, will always make me smile! My sincere sympathies go out to Cindy and his MANY close friends; Lloyd's friendly face and demeanor will be sadly missed!!

I am so sorry to have heard this news!! Lloyd was a character, and quite colorful sometimes...He was involved in so many things, but I thought, the most wonderful, was the Special Olympics! For such a TOUGH Exterior, he really was a softy, when it came to that!!! Cindy I hope you recover quickly, from this devastating blow!!! I am truly sorry for your loss!!!
