Lloyd I finally hit my 29 years and retired from Santa Fe in Oct of 2017. Where did the time go," it just goes". I have always thought about you over the years during my career and the values you instilled in me got me through some tough times on the job. I may be older and wiser from that young kid you helped raise but I will never forget! Rest easy Lloyd, may your memory and sacrifice never fade. I sure do miss you , along with all the cool memories. love always your Godson Ronnie.
