Dear Aunt Sandra and my dear cousins Tammy and Tina,

We were very saddened by the passing of Uncle Lloyd. He was kind, always smiled, and was good to visit Grandma. I always enjoyed seeing him at the family reunions. When Grandma stayed with me several times during the winter, she told me some sweet stories about Uncle Lloyd as a child when they lived in Sparta. He will never be forgotten and will always live in your hearts and memories and for all those whose lives he touched. Lots of love and hugs sent your way now and in the days to come.

To My Dear Cousins,

I have so many fond memories of your dad. When I was young and out on the tractor with Granddaddy I asked him what his name was. He replied Mickey Mouse and I remember pointing him out to my mother and telling her his name. She had a good chuckle before she explained that was my Uncle Lloyd. Such a sweet and gentle man. You are both in my prayers. Love you.

I feel truly blessed to have known and to have called the "legendary" Lloyd Holloway one of my closest friends. He most certainly was a great and dear friend!

We had many special times together travelling, playing, competing, or just hanging out at the club or the camp. He was loyal and trustworthy and had a great sense of humor.

Lloyd helped me and my friends through some difficult times and I really appreciated his generosity, wisdom, and advice.

Lloyd was slightly competitive but definitely a WINNER!
I will miss you, my friend.
God Bless You Lloyd Holloway.
