    Katherine, Maggie, Suzanne and families
    I am so sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing. I have such wonderful memories of visiting with Lloyd when buying shoes or just seeing him out and about. His family and mom’s family go back many generations. My family still recalls how I mispronounced his name when I was little. From that day forward, he was always “Lord Best”. I will miss talking with him about our favorite Andy Griffith episodes. He always laughed when I said “Lloyd, don’t be Glenn Fording it all over town.”. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    So sorry of the passing of Lloyd. He lived a remarkable life of service and was a friend to all that came to know him. I have, as many of my family, have bought shoes, visited with the Best family years past. Knew Lloyd in high school as a friend. He leaves a wonderful legacy for the community he loved. Sincere condolences to his Family.
