    My sincere condolences to all of Lloyd’s family. He was a close friend and mentor to me for many years and I am sad to lose him. It is unfortunate that I did not get to see him more often in the last few months. I am sure the Lord has already put him to work on some new project. May his comfort be with each of you in the days ahead. Barry Bickford

    Thanks for forwarding, Dwight. I have many fond memories of your Dad. I boarded at your house st Cardiff Place for two years when I was in my early 20’s and your parents were very kind to me. You, Leslie (I remember her by that name) and Randy were active young kids. With the Stampede currently underway I recall one year your Dad had three mini model T’s which we drove in the parade (I think your Dad, Randy and I each drove one). I also worked one summer with the hail suppression project in Didsbury which was a great experience.

    Sincere condolencies and all the best to you and all he family members.
