Sorry for your loss. We are praying peace and comfort to you and your family. He is not resting in peace in the presence of God.
The Shelton family will be in my thoughts during this sad time. I always enjoyed hanging out with Lloyd, Mary Jane and the family. Lloyd always made me feel welcome and was fun to be around. It seemed like he was always knocking a wall out or remodeling a room (and it always looked great when he was done). He will be missed for sure. My deepest sympathies to Mary Jane, Sheryl, Jay and Buffy.
Lloyd was such an empathic person. So very sorry we couldn’t spend more time together. We thing of him often and always wills. LLoyd way a true christian. “God Bless”
