Tim and your family,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad.  I hadn’t seen Lloyd around town for a couple of years, but whenever I did I was reminded of what a character he was!  Keeping you and Caiden and Cole in my positive thoughts.  Please take care,

Whopper, my first and BEST friend at Wibur Chocolate when I was 22 years old and Whop was 32.  You were a great teacher, a patient friend, and a person I always looked up to.  I shared so many great experiences with you, camping, fishing, road trips, Virgina Beach vacations, dart league championships, ABC golf tournaments (Albert Blefko Classic), laughs, camp fires, cook outs, boating, cooking, late nights and yes………..the pursuit of fun loving people!  We were both single and you were my mentor, wow, what great GREAT memories.  I look forward to when we meet again in heaven my friend.

When I worked with Whopper at Wilbur Chocolate many years ago we had fun. I lost touch with him as I went to Kelloggs.  Whopper thanks for your service and serving in Viet Nam and our country.  God bless you and  R.I.P.     Glenn Carpenter
