I am so sad I couldn’t be off work to be there with family for the service. Uncle Loyd spoiled me rotten when I was little and has always continued to remind me that I pretty much belonged to him and Aunt Joyce and how much they loved me. I will miss him so much and still miss Aunt Joyce. I bet she is so happy having him in Heaven with her now. Love you Uncle Loyd and family ❤️
Sammy I’m so very sorry to hear of Mr. Estes’ passing. May you be able to find Peace and Comfort in knowing that he is again in Heaven with Mrs. Joyce. Prayers for Comfort
We are sorry for your loss. May your days and weeks to come be filled with lots of wonderful memories!Jeff & Peggy Byrd
The Gentle Giant…that’s who my Uncle Loyd was to me. Gentle, soft-spoken, loving, kind and godly. So many of my most treasured childhood memories of of times spent with him and Aunt Joyce. I know they are together again in Heaven rejoicing with the Lord. I love you, Uncle Loyd.
My grandfather, such a wonderful man!
