My name is Cindy Lloyd and I am Yerby Lloyds granddaughter. I have herd so many good things about Willie. I am so sorry that I never had the chance to get to know him. Everyone will be in my prayer.
To Nana and Papaw and Jenny,We are sorry we couldn`t make it to the funeral, but we didn`t know about it in time. Eliza and Larry should have been there, no matter what Peggy had to say about it. We love you and we miss you. We will see you all soon.

I only had the honor of knowing Willie for about 8 years, but it was long enough to know that he was a very special man. I lost my father 34 years ago, and Willie became my Dad. I always looked up to him and cherished the time that we had. Willie, I will always keep the promise that I made you of taking care of Virginia. I love her and she will always be protected. Love you Dad, and miss you more than you will ever know.Jerry
I am a good friend of Charles Harrison, Willie`s step-son, although I know Katty, Willie`s wife, I did not know Willie himself. I did however hear many great things about him. My condolences go out to the family and to my good friends Katty and Charles. They have been very good friends to me and have helped me a great deal in dealing with the recent Loss of my father, so I can honestly say I know what it means to loose a father. Mine was only 63. In times like these we need to remember family values and come together to support one another. Again my condolences to the family for your loss, and may Heavenly father bless you and keep you together as family through this trying and painful time.
I MISS YOU SO MUCH DAD. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WITH ME IN MY HEART. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS YOUR DAUGHTER.
Hey Grandpa, just want u to know I miss you. I hope one day we can sit down and talk. I did something I never thought I could come to do… I went to the retreat hospital and thanked them for what the could do to take care of you. I miss you. Its a lot different now without you. Moms a wreck we haven`t spokin im a few months. Something were said that were hurtful so I went my seprate way. I never wanted anything like this to happen. A family should be family no mater what and I remember u telling me that one day when I was young. Imma come see you soon papa. I love you Merry Christmas.
