Dear Nona and family. We are so sorry we could not attend the services for Llord. We both have been very ill.
May our lord comfort and bless you and yours.
Agape Love, the Ramo family
My thoughts, prayers and sympathy extend to you today in regard to your loss of a husband, father and grandfather.
We are sorry for your loss. Cora called to let us know. Lloyd had been on our prayer list for a while. Praying for someone even though you don’t know them you feel a connection to them because we know Liz & Cora. We will continue to pray for your family. Sincerely, Carolyn & Amanda Hall
Sorry to see in the paper of your lost. Nona and Lloyd were so good to my parents while living on Gallophing Ghost Rd. I lost Don over 3 years ago and have remarried and now live in Westminster. Sarah and James are still doing OK for their age in Greenwood. Miriam and her husband recently moved to Conesstee Falls near Brevard. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

I am sorry for your lost. I remember the time Liz, William and me went to Anderson, SC for a weekend visit and went for a boat ride on Lake Hartwell and the poodle pup that you got from Mom.
