Precious little Annie -
Knowing both you and Lloyd has been a blessing, even though he was already battling dementia when I met him. The love you shared and your amazing caregiving were inspiring. Blessings to you and yours as you grieve; may the best of your memories together comfort you now and always. Love,

Ann, please accept my condolences. I remember lloyd as one of the most engaging and outgoing people in our pilot training class. He was always smiling except just before a check ride but then none of us smiled then either!. I regret that I was not able to attend the two reunions and to see Lloyd before he passed away. I will always think fondly of him

I served with Lloyd in the 20th Special Operations Squadron from 1980 -1985. He was always the consummate "Warrior"
and professional Military man. I consider it an honor to have known and flown with Lloyd.
He will be missed by all that knew him.
