Lisa and Family,

Annette and I would like to express our sincere condolences with your Mom's passing. These times are always difficult when a loved one leaves us here on Earth. But we find comfort in trusting in God's promise and thus celebrate their life and commemorate all the love and care we shared and received from them with fond memories and pictures. It is and will always be a time of adjustment for all of us left behind but we can rest easy knowing that our loved one is in heaven above with our Lord. May your strength of faith be unyielding and with the support of all your family and friends help sustain you all as time passes us by. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

During the mid 80's and thru the mid 90's I bowled with Coke. We bowled together at the Riverside, Bowladrome, and Penn. We would sometimes see each other at States. I can't remember the year, but National's were held in Niagara Falls, NY, and Coke asked me to be her partner in Doubles. I was honored!! There was a group of us, but she wanted me!! I was not the greatest, but I gave it my all! She was proud of me! Always something good to say, encouraging, willing to help me. I became an excellent bowler in the years to come. When I hit my 1st 600, She called and congratulated me, out of no where!! "I remember when you threw a gutter ball in front of me!! Look at you NOW!" Coke was 1 of a kind, and I'll remember her always!! I am so sorry to all of you for your loss. If you can not place me, maybe 1 of you may remember my Mom and Dad, Becky and Harry Lloyd of Sheffield. God Bless.
