To Jacquiline, Marc, Christopher, and Family: Lofton is always remembered for his genuine friendship, care, and love of family. And, I for one, remember him on the golf course for his liveliness, and spirit of the game. His use of the 'wedge' in his approach shots to the green. I still have his voice saved in my 'message list' over five years ago when he addressed me as 'Jagan' and he as 'Barak Obama' notifying me of his arrival to Roanoke to join me and my group here to play golf. Jacqui, my wife and I do wish you the best of health and happy to know that your children and grands do care for your well-being and that they have cherished their dad's good qualities and lessons of life. We are all aging now, and can only try to continue to be good parents, grand-parents, etc. Do keep well everyone, and continue in being cheerful and share happiness, peace and love. God Bless. Dharam & Angela Sawh & Family

Five years and it seems like yesterday. Marc and I who were at your bedside then,visited your grave side today. 5 years ago you slipped away so quietly the doctor had to tell us that you were gone. I miss you. The words of the song keep going through my mind. "Still, After all this time, Still, You are still on my mind, I love you still.

Five years and feels like 5 days. I try to be an example for my children as you were for me. Passing on your best qualities and learning from your mistakes. I wish you were here to meet Izzy. He has a personality and presence to rival yours. I miss you and love you.

Still thinking of you . With my medical issues I wish you were here to cheer me up with your humorous slant on human situations. Your sons are doing a wonderful job. I think of the courage you showed in your illness and admire you even more. I miss you.

"LWT" was truly the first mentor I had, he inspired me to great heights, I remember as if it was yesterday, in 1988 when he employed me as his "Sales Representative" for ESSO Guyana. I had just graduated, and the role encompassed huge responsibilities to the commercial sector as well as the retail. He told me that he was confident that I would fulfill the role, and for the three years under his guidance and mentorship, I grew into a totally different indivdual following his lead. This served me for the rest of my career as I worked in different countries, thank you! I am what I am today because of your early influence- Desmond

The celebration of Lofton's Birthday was always a big celebration for his friends in So. Florida because falls on the long weekend, and he always had a blast! In 2010 when his friends had 5 parties that weeknd for him he said with a big laugh "My RAAS" I never had 5 B'day parties. He will always hold a special place in our hearts.We all missed him this year and treasure his friendship.

To our dear brother "Lofton" what can we say? Michael Jackson could not have said it better: GONE TOO SOON. To our wonderful sister-in-law, Jacqueline "you deserve an honorary medal of distinction. Keep being yourself". To our handsome nephews, Michael, Marc and Chris, "we always have loved and continue to love you. Take care of your Mom!" Dulcie, Jhoy and family.

Lofton, you hold a special place in my Heart.You were full of “Life, Love & Laughter”.We were all put here by God for a purpose; I believe that part of yours was to make sure everyone you met had a smile on their face. I remember the jokes and laughs. Now you’ve moved on to be in heaven. I’m blessed to have known you & I will cherish the memories. Goodbye for now my beloved friend.

“Lofton”:- A kind and well-respected brother. A family-oriented brother. A brother who kept the family ties closely-knit. A brother with a tease and a great sense of humour. A handsome brother with an engaging smile. A brother who never forgot and always called on a sibling’s birthday. A brother who will be greatly missed. A brother who God loved more than we did and so took him home.

Describing 'Lofton' as a friend leaves me at loss for adaquate words. As a colleague, he was a hard worker, thorough individual and indeed a true leader. In our personal relationship we always had a special connect. What will always be foremost was his extremely witty intellect and good humour. He will always be missed. May God comfort his family in their grief and loss at this time.

Loughton, I met you only a few times and worked together even less. I remember your engaging spirited personality, very direct and energetic. I liked you and wish I had gotten to know you better. Now rest in peace my friend.

A special brother is hard to find, you loughton I'm keeping you in my mind. I wished you could have stayed forever, but I will never forget you oh not ever. If dreams weren't dreams and dreams come true, I wouldn't be here I'd be with you. Distance is one thing that keeps us apart, but brother you will always remain in my heart. Rest in pease t,

Uncle Loughton, unfortunately you left this earth too soon, but I am sure that you are in a better place now. I never got the chance to really get to know you, but my dad talked to me about you. I was able to meet you once at Brenda's wedding, and I could tell that you were a good person at heart. Rest in peace uncle Loughton, you will be missed!
Posted by Deborah Adams on 16th April 2013
On behalf of the Adams family, former neighbors of Lofton and his family, I would like to extend my sincere sympathy. Over the years we have lost touch with each other, however the memories of the past will always linger.......Hugs to all of you.....
Posted by Sylvia Ward on 16th April 2013
Dear Lofton - we shared many fond memories together when we were teenagers in St.Kitts. We lost contact over the years and reconnected in 1998. Your sense of humour was priceless. We laughed a lot when we spoke. I was very happy that I was able to speak with you in January. You were in a lot of pain. However, you are now in a better place and out of all pain and suffering. Rest In Peace,
