Dear Aunt Linda, Jimmie, Randy and Greg

So sorry to hear about Uncle Lloyd. It is always so hard to let go of someone you love so much. I always had to brag about my handsome Uncle who was in the navy and his good looking sons. Never forgotton the time I came and visited you all so many years ago. I know you have wonderfull memories of him and that will help you get through.

God be with you at this time.

Love,

Sandra

Dear Linda and Boys,

I loved and respected my brother very much. I have alot of wonderful memories of him when he was a young boy growing up. He use to come and stay with me and go hunting and fishing with Hubert and dad. He always told Dad if him and Hubert would take him hunting he would carry the rabbits. They went hunting once and killed alot of rabbits and Lloyd carried them all,but never complained. Hubert and Dad got a big kick out of that. I was at mom’s when he called and told her he had joined the navy. He has been gone over the years, but when he came home he always had to come and see me. I love him very much, but I feel he is with mom and dad now and probably fishing and having a good time with them. I am so sorry I could’nt be there with you all but I am with you in spirit.

Love,

Louise

and

Hubert

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God; it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. Psalm 100

Hi all,

What I remember about Uncle Lloyd? I remember as a kid being teased incessently when we visited from Guam. I also remember him giving me grief because I was going to marry a sailor. Even though we spent very little time with him, I remember him as being close in spirit to my mother Della. She always spoke fondly of him. Our prayers are with you during this time of sorrow but also in celebration of his life and acommplishments. Our love is with you all. Even though I don’t know any of you very well, please know that you all are welcome to visit us in CA anytime. Love Always, Linda & Fred Della’s daughter in CA

Linda and family, My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Ernie was the greatest. My fondest memories will be singing with him at the Moose Lodge doing Karoke. He always seemed to enjoy participating in that. He was truly such a good person. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
