Thanks to all family and friends who came to visit and those who tried to visit. A special thank you to aunt Mary and uncle Clyde for all their love and support. A memorial service will be held at the Oak Bank United Church on Wednesday, April 12, at 1:00 p.m. A private family interment will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please plant a tree in Lloyds memory. GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not be be, He closed His arms around you, And whispered, "Come to Me." In tears we saw you sinking, We watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, You fought so hard to stay. What you suffered, you told us few, You didnt deserve what you went through. Tired and weary, you made no fuss, But tried so hard to stay with us. But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful, free from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer all that again. So treasure him Lord, in your garden of rest, For here one earth, he was the very best. Love You Always.
