    My grandparents were best friends with Lloyd’s parents. I grew up calling them “Uncle Pat & Aunt Flo”! We used to go to their farm often & I used to ride their pony, Tony. They had a bucket in their kitchen with a dipper that you could use to get a drink of well water. My grandparents were Hugh & Lucy May Etter, of Plainview. I am sorry for your loss. I remember Lloyd fondly!
