I'm so sorry to hear of Lloyd's passing, he was a kind and compassionate man who I enjoyed many brilliant conversations with. I believe it is our goal in life to treat others with love and respect and to leave the world a better place, Lloyd certainly accomplished that and more. Thank you for your friendship Lloyd, it will not be forgotten.
