    Lloyd was such an interesting character and a regular at the senior center. I would always tell him he should write a book – so many wonderful tales of very interesting life working around the aviation all around the world! Life for everyone who knew him will certainly be less interesting. Willi and I send our condolences to Clara during this very sad time.

    Privilege to hear LLyod speak of The Honor Flight. He spoke of the pilots that transported all the veterans, Different color vans awaited them at the airport to take them to the memorials. He was on the blue bus, because he could walk. Llyod helped other vets in wheel chairs and also took their pictures for them. He met a wonderful lady that was on her way to take cookies to the blue bus. It was for them to snack on for the ride back to the airport. He spoke with her and discussed how wonderful it was for all the veterans to be honored this way. It was a very emotional time in a wonderful way. When arriving back to Omaha, veterans of all kinds there to greet us. Some on motorcycles to honor us. Bands playing patriotic tunes. Llyod’s stain glass art work. Both with the American Flags. This was Lloyd’s way to thank Mills County Veterans Affairs for what the office does for fellow veterans. Oh course hugs and tears were shared.Lyoyd was very proud of his country.
