I've known and admired Lloyd and Thelma for more than 50 years; have innumerable fond memories shared with them, their children, and grandchildren (even a few of their "greats"). Sadly, I'll be involved in a funeral service at our church at the same times, so cannot come in person to offer condolences. Melanie Robert
