We are very sorry for your loss. We know Adam (and Kylee) both shared such fond memories of his grandpa.
May your recollections of better times be of great comfort to you all.

I am saddened for your loss. I met him at Davita Dialysis Center where my dad goes. From the moment I first met him, I knew Lloyd was a special person. He always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes. I never heard him complain. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to know him and will cherish the memories I have of him. Praying for peace and comfort as the family now adjusts to a new chapter in life. May God Bless each of you!

In His Love,

Kelly Goodman
