Loyd was an amazing artist. I met him through a dear friend. I lost 3 special pets and he offered to make their headstones. He made all 3 headstones out of marble. They were awesome. That was many years ago, and they are still beautiful, even through all the weather.
Loyd, now you can run free and see all the great countries of France and Italy. Rest free, friend, you deserve it.

I can tell you what a wonderful man Lloyd was to many. He knew what true friendship was , He expected the same in return. Since 1989 Lloyd & I friendship went through many hills and valleys. He taught me many things and helped me to stay sober as I helped him. Being his first sponsor in AA(alcoholics anonymous), At first was a challenge then it became obvious we needed each other's support the encouragement unconditional love. I can only say he's one of the best friends I ever had. We didn't always agree but that was okay we allowed for each other's uniqueness. We both had goals, dreams and ambitions . I'm happy to say that the majority of those goals and dreams and ambitions of Lloyd's became reality. His infectious smile that happy go lucky man only wanted a few things in life. #1 Someone to share his life with that he was physically attracted but most importantly someone who was intelligent one who was dedicated one who would treat him with respect & loyalty & dignity to not judge his past & that one to grow with him. I'm happy that person was Ricky. I was skeptical because I only know what was shared with me how they met it gave me pause it wasn't the "normal" typical way. However in hindsight he picked the most perfect partner Ricky who gave loyd everything he ever wanted or needed dreamed of in a relationship therefore he married him Ricky the one true love the one who stood beside him against all odds never wavering and only showing what true love and dedication is. I can tell you most of his concerns throughout his challenges was for his husband Ricky for his home to be a home of comfort for him and his husband. We shared every aspect of our life over the many years our successes & failures but most of all our dreams and ambition. He accomplished what most people thought impossible he passed sober & truly loved by his husband. A life of most of his bucket list complete. I'll miss my friend . God bless him & all who loved him unconditionally R.I.P. coop
