  1. We will miss you so much Papa Lloyd….but we know your in heaven without a doubt and that makes me smile..we were so blessed to have you in our family.. Thank you for all that you did for us…Love you always Papa Lloyd?

  2. I am very sorry to read of the loss of Mr. Rooks. He was a very caring, and dedicated person, both in his professional life, but especially his personal one; he was an amazing man! I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 11:25, which says, ” Jesus said to…: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl

  3. We all will miss Lloyd, his love for each of us, his wisdom, and his presence in our lives. I am Lloyd’s step daughter, Julie. Lloyd was very close to his step children as well and loved us all. Im not sure why we weren’t mentioned but thats pretty sad. There is Susan Shaw, myself, Carole Goff, Vernon Clark, and Candace Stock. I will pray for this family. They missed out on alot of memories with their father.
