  6. Pauline and family—Our deepest sympathy to you…but we know that Lloyd is now in the arms of Jesus our Savior. It was my privilege to be Lloyd’s roommate at St. John’s and can attest that he was one of the nicest people I have ever known and simply never complained about anything.
    We enjoyed our time being together. Now we commend him to the Lord and look forward to the day we will join him.
