    Billie & family,  I was sad to read of Lloyd's passing. I have driven past your home for 43 years on my way to work at the hospital. It gave me joy to see Lloyd sitting in his lawn chair in the driveway and sending a wave now and then. I am so sorry for your loss and wanted you to know I'm keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.  Sincerely,  Mary Jo Kavalier
