    Lloyd, we’re very sorry for your loss. It is always bad to lose the one you’ve lived with for so long. We have been married about the same length of time. It will be 28 years in July for us.

    Dear friends: I am so sorry to read about your loss. Nancy was a sweet friend for many years. We all had so much fun at the Cedar Grove Methodist Church in our youth group. We were all friends I will treasure forever.
    I certainly feel your pain as Edward went to be with the Lord on October 25th. Lloyd we will definitely be looking for that “MEETING IN THE AIR” we all sang about.
    Lloyd I am so happy you and Nancy were able to share 57 years together. How wonderful. God is good. I will certainly be praying for you all.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolence. May the God of all comfort, Jehovah, look after you during this most difficult time. In the book of Revelation 21:3,4 there is a beautiful promise He gives where He says that soon will come a time when death, mourning, and tears will be no more.
