So sorry to hear of Mr. Lloyd's passing. He was a very sweet man and I know my nephew, Dustin Ardoin, will miss him a lot. I have so many memories of times Dustin spent with them on the farm. He and my other nephew, Clayton, would play with the chickens and the goats. I know that those sweet memories will be with him forever. Rest in Peace, Lloyd. Heaven has gained another angel.
