Internment Washington National Cemetery.
It is so hard to say goodbye to a friend. Lloyd became my friend while attending Florida Memorial College in 1974. In later years our traveling group became known as the " Haves and the Have Not’s" . This family of 8 longtime friends continued the bond of true friendship. Every year at FMU Homecoming we would rent a vacation home in Miami to celebrate life. Our group texted a daily devotion message to communicate and give thanks to GOD. Lloyd would ALWAYS be the first to respond to the daily group text message. He shared with us when he joined the church and many other cherished moments The Have and the Have Not’s celebrate his life. Until we meet again! Rest in Heaven my brother!
You were definitely one of a kind you will genuinely be missed RIP my brother. Absent from the body is to be present with the Lord <
rest in peace you always be my brother and missed
