So sorry to hear that you lost your dad last weekend. Liz forwarded your email to us. I didn’t know Uncle Wally well at all, but he was always part of the conversation involving the Lloyd family. When he was a teenager, he and Tadge came to visit us in upstate New York. I was just a toddler, but my Mom used to tell the story about the peach pie she baked and put on a window sill to cool. The pie disappeared. Upon investigation she discovered that Tadge and Wally had helped themselves and consumed the whole pie. I think he was a lot like my dad. You were fortunate to have him as long as you did. Our thoughts are with you and the rest of your family.

God Bless,
Cal and Ann Lloyd
