|Let the memory of Lloyd be with us forever|
"Grandpa Lloyd, not a day goes by that I don't either think of u or talk to u and tell u I miss u and how loving and caring u were of ur family we will never forget ur unconditional love I always showed is even if we may of thought I were grumpy or upset we knew that was ur way of tough love!! Being hard on us was good for us to learn that living and experiencing life as u did was wat we all needed to succes to the beat of our abilities on this crazy thing called life! Now is ur time to rest easy and wait for us to join u in ur loving, caring, beautiful home that God has brought u to!! Ik he takes care of u and makes sure u are loved and happy!! Peace be with us all left here and may God shine His light upon us all for we are Gods children and soon we will be with u Grandpa Lloyd!! I love u and miss u!!"
"It's been 2 yrs now since you made your journey home dad and I miss you like the day you passed. I'm glad I felt good enough to make it to visit you, Tom & Jolene. You all left us in the same year so today is tough. As you know all of of your kids & the grandkids who could make it were there at your resting place. It made it easier to be surrounded by all who love and miss you so much still. Father's Day was and will be tough but how fortunate for us to have had many with you. As your children we put our differences aside to be there for you and each other today. I know that it was your wish for us to all get along and support each other and be together so we did. I will do everything in my power to continue to carry on your legacy...family! I luv and miss you dad..."
"Happy Birthday to the greatest man I've ever know. U never liked birthday gifts or any fussing with a party but instead u preferred the family gathering. We miss u everyday and that will never change. Since we visited u last month some of us r struggling with things in our lives & I believe our visit to u brought that out in us. We will get thru our trials and errors knowing how u believed in family unity to help get us thru. U lived an honest life and u were true to yourself right up until the end and that is what I aspire to so I can pass that strength and courage to future generations in your honor. I'm understanding a little more each day that ur at peace and I know u lived a long good life and taught us a lot. As much as my heart hurts from missing your presence and the wisdom and humbleness in your conversations I'm learning that was your legacy. I hope u know how much ur loved and missed by many still. I'll talk to u as I always do and see u in my dreams until I see u again!!"
"Happy Birthday Dad, Love and miss you and know you are watching over us. After visiting you on your memorial, it reunited the family and we are all working on what you always taught us. Family is the most important part of our lives."
"Hello Dad, we came to visit you yesterday. Most of the family any ways.I continue to miss you but say Hi! in the morning. it gets me through the tough times. You where a family matriarch and the strongest supporter of all of us. You believed we should all stick together and after being with you I believe it will happen..I continue to love and miss you. You will always be in my heart..LOVE YOU DAD!!!"
"Yesterday we went to see u and it made me cry to b there because I miss u so much still. It's been a year today since u left and it hurts just like it happened that day. As children do I am no different, I thought u would live forever. I told u yesterday when I talked to u and I know u were there that I'm lost without u in my life. U have always been a big part of my life, then my kids as they got older and when that stopped I felt lost. Everyone says it gets easier with time and I have to disagree. Although I continue my life there's always an empty spot where u should b. I know your body was tired and your mind too and u had to go I just wished I could tell u I love u and hug u one more time. I know your with me and the family in our hearts and my hope is that someday I will b in a place where I can b happy to know that ur at peace. For now all I can do is pray for the strength and guidance to help me through so I can b as loving parent and grandparent as u were. I love u dad and miss u so much."
"A week ago today we laid to rest your oldest son and he is now with you dad. It was hard seeing my brother one last time especially because he looked just like you when you passed. It's only been 9 months since you made your journey home and we had to send another so close. Every day gets easier and even though it still feels like yesterday you left I'm trying to find strength and courage to see myself and the family thru it. You were always right about praying and family are everything during hard times and it's what keeps me moving forward. It's hard especially now that it's spring because you always were in my yard doing something or making sure the grass was cut and raked. I have everything of yours still in my house and all your tools and stuff in the garage and it makes me lonesome but I will grow and learn from these feelings. I know you watch over all of us daily and we still try to have Sunday dinner every Sunday in your honor and keep your memory alive by doing that. All I have is family and I learned that from you and nothing else really matters in this world without family. Continue resting at peace dad as you now have your grand daughter and son by your side until I see you again. I love you and miss you still!"
"Dad, you are missed and loved very much, I continue to say Hi! every morning along with my morning prayers. it helps me get through the day."
"I miss u so much still dad!"
Have a suggestion for us?
