Condolence: I haven’t seen Lloyd in many, many years. But I’ve never forgotten what a terrific friend and playmate he was in our group of friends in Hartsville in the late 50s and early 60s. We adored him. In fact one of my best memories is my first day of attending second grade at Warwick Elementary School. I was transferring in to public school from Catholic and I was incredibly nervous but excited to be in school finally with my gang of Hartsville friends. Lloyd was so nice to me. He made me feel welcome and included. He was so funny and had me laughing hysterically. For a lot of reasons I list this day as one of the best! And Lloyd has always been a big part of that memory. What a great kid to be growing up with! The fact that he devoted his life to serving his community is absolutely no surprise.
Condolence: My condolences to Lloyd’s family and dear friends. Lloyd and I were together in the fifth and sixth grades at Warwick Elementary School, and our mothers were friends from Circle at Neshaminy Warwick Presbyterian Church. As the years went on, our paths did not cross again until about five years ago, when I was making arrangements to inter my mother’s remains in the family cemetery plot at church. At the very last minute there was a huge snafu about whether there was space for mom in the family plot! Between an impending snowstorm and my grief, I went into complete panic. I knew Lloyd worked at the church, so I called and asked for Lloyd.
He was preparing to go home for the evening but immediately offered to meet me right then and there - in the snow, in the dark and mud. He resolved the problem and the ”show” went on as planned the next afternoon. I will never forget his kindness to me that night.
