George Lloyd 1952-2011
Today I wanted to take a moment to pay tribute to a man that I have been blessed to have known for almost 20 years. This was a man who I got to know one small step at a time. Over the the years, he became a man I could trust and count on, without judgement, regardless of the circumstances. Everyone has 1 or 2 people in their lives that are more than just acquaintances- they are the people you admire and respect. Maybe they would hold a flashlight in the rain if you needed, or would drive all night to make sure you were ok. George was this man to me. He always had a smile for me, and would be truly interested in whatever it was I had to say. Over the last year and a half, I felt closer to him than ever, both through conversation, and seeing how he affected the people around him. I am grateful to be able to say that I have no regrets, and no unfinished business in his and ours relationship. I would have loved to have been able to spend another 20 years of my life knowing George, but that is not meant be. This is why I will never forget the years I did get to spend with him. George will never be just my Father in Law, he will always be my friend.
