James Louis Lloyd
February 5, 1957 - November 18, 2013
Never have the words "rest in peace" meant so much.
Jim was my older brother by 2 years.
We all felt the passing of our mom, but Jim never seemed to get over it.
He wrestled with that pain off and on for years to great cost.
Jim has been very sick for the past few years and today his body succumbed to cancer but he was finally reunited with our mom and dad.
I believe he is up to his old tricks. He is displaying sarcasm and wit and he's once again his mischievous self.
The painful effects of his life cannot be undone but I know that God does bring beauty from ashes and that there is beauty in his complete healing - physically, spiritually and emotionally.
He is probably relaying to mom and dad all that they have missed with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
"When we all get to heaven?"
We will get on a bus and go to a Mets game.
We will fish in a reservoir.
We will go camping in the Catskills and we'll light the campfire with our dry wit.
We will all put on our red footy p.j.s and wait for Santa.
We'll climb into the stagecoach and ride into the sunset.
We will wear tennis shoes in Lake Sinissippi.
We'll have pork chops and applesauce for dinner.
"If I hear somebody say "moving forward" one more time they are going to get a Skilsaw to the head."
Oh Jim, I love you so.
Love you forever.
Rest in Peace, brother, REST IN PEACE!
