Dear Bruce and Elizabeth and family,
Thinking of you in the loss of your father. He lived a long life and we have faith that he has gone on to his reward. But he leaves a hole in your lives. I would never wish my parents back in their elderly and sick bodies but I miss them. Random events occur and I think of them. So thankful for faithful parents that finished well. Hugs from here. Dave and Kristi

Surely thinking of you these days as you prepare to lay your dear Dad to rest. I greatly appreciated my time with him while with Walter K, Ryan W, and others; his hospitality and love for his God and family made for a comfortable man to be around. He'll be missed.

Bruce and Donna, thanks for a signed copy of Lloyd's book. What a life he had. He used it well. Your mom, meant a lot too me also. It's hard when both parents are gone. So many questions you find unanswered as they are not there. But the main comfort is, what they lived for and what they gone on to is a much better life.

Its hard to lose a love one, but we can be very thankful there is no more suffering. but gain. I always enjoy being around your folks since my early childhood. My brother and I spent a couple weeks with your dad when he lived on the farm to help him harvest hay.
Again our thought are with you all at this time.

Bruce (Elizabeth) & Donna (Bob) and families,
Always enjoyed seeing and speaking with your father (at conv.). His spirit and love for truth were an inspiration. It is hard to lose one's parent(s) no matter how long we may have them around to enjoy. Our thoughts and prayers were and are with you at this difficult time. May your many special memories help comfort each one of you (children & grandchildren). We know that there can't be an arrival without a departure.
