Hey, Lloyd! We miss you and think about you every day!! We are all extremely saddened by your loss knowing what you would have become but we are extremely proud of what you did for the rest of us.
As your big brother (in-law), I am doing the best I can to live up to the sacrifice and honor that you bestowed on me and your grateful descendants. You would be proud of your sister, who has set a great example as mother and model student for your three nephews, George, Lloyd and Chisholm. Our son, Jeep (George, Jr) is a successful business man; Lloyd, your name sake, has become a great family doctor and Chisholm, who carries your middle name, is a successful aerospace engineer. You would be proud to have known them, as they would you.
I hope those who visit you here also will visit other sites that honor you so that they can remember with us what a great person you were.
Kay and I also placed a memorial chair in your honor at my Naval Academy Navy/Marine Corps Memorial stadium.
We will never forget you, Marine!! Sleep well!! SemperFi!!
Love, your family,
Placed by his brother-in-law,
