Dear Donna and Family,

A beautiful service. Lloyd will no doubt have enjoyed it from where he is now. May his memory be eternal.

I wish to send my sympathies to my high school classmates, Gary and Ronda. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Gary's father. I will not be able to attend the funeral since I live in NJ, but hope many classmates will.
