Uncle Loyd was one of the most giving people I've known. The first to jump in no questions asked to help anyone around him. He and Aunt Julie were quite a pair 😊. Rest in peace, united again! Say hi Dad, he was one of your favorites!! I'm sure the three of you are laughing together again! Thanks for all the memories and photos and stories you always shared.💛
