It's always said that people live on because they are remembered by those who loved them.... Everybody who ever met Lloyd loved him. He was a man whose name always came up in conversations.... usually with some crazy fun story attached.... and always spoken of with genuine affection. I feel so privileged to have known him, to have been a part of the magic he created with his unending wit and charm.... and I will miss him so very much.
