My most sincere condolences on the passing of Lloyd.

I didn't know your dad very well, I guess because of my age. But my parents, Rob and Herbie Wagner, were great friends and neighbors from "way back in the day" on Grape Street. With three kids, twins on the way and experience as true Southerners, I am confident they were of great help, comfort, and joy for my mom and dad.

And let us not forget the infamous stories of the Pape life. Some still bring us to tears with laughter; only to be silenced by the nostalgia of a bygone era. There was the house on Grape, already too small for the family and where everyone wanted to congregate, and homemade pink pickles, kids everywhere, never-ending laundry, a killer garden every summer, and a station wagon that seemed to go on forever.

I'll be thinking of the family in the days ahead. May you all find comfort in knowing how much Lloyd was loved and how his memory (and Betty's too) will live on in our hearts and minds.

With love,
Michele Adams
