Dear Nita & Family: I am just now finding out this morning about Lloyd's going home and I am at a loss for words. I hope that someone will read this at some point even though its been a touch over a year since he passed. Nita, I am deeply sorry for your loss and I know he will always be missed until we see him again. I will never forget the first Thursday evening at Yokefellows that I met both you and Lloyd in Springfield, Missouri. I was scared because I had just gotten to the facility, but also a certain calm as I found a spot to occupy. My name is Larry, the guy in the wheelchair with the missing leg that was always shy when Lloyd would ask me, "Larry, do you have a song for us this evening?" I was definitely scared that I was going to run out of songs to sing, but did my best not to do many repeats. (chuckling) It always warmed my heart that you would also gracefully go over to the piano and start playing beautifully to help accompany me with Lloyd's weekly song request from time to time. Over the 40 years that you both volunteered over there at Springfield Medical Center for Federal Prisoners, the number will be too many to count of how many men's lives that you touched there. Because when those men went back to the outside with Jesus, they will carry Him with them to their families too that didn't know Jesus. Remember when Lois would always shout excitedly whenever the question about the shortest verse in the bible came up? Yup, you guessed it! "Jesus wept!", she would exclaim! (chuckling) I could go on and on of how much I desired to fellowship at Yokefellows with you Nita, Lloyd and every one else on Thursday nights. My deepest condolences to the entire Colbaugh family. God broke the mold when he made Lloyd. Because there is no one more special that I can think that has impacted my life so warmly of that than Lloyd. You knew when you looked into his eyes; Jesus was always shining and smiling right through him. Love-in-Christ, Larry G.

It was a joy to have known Lloyd. My first encounters with him was in 1980 at Gospel Publishing House. Always a kind a gracious man. I so admired his ministry with the prison for so many years. In the past few years, I had the privilege of seeing he and Nita as they did their shopping at Price Cutter. Absolutely sweetest couple ever. His love and devotion to his Lord, wife and family were unparalleled. Prayers go out to Nita and the rest of the family. What a homecoming Lloyd must have received from our Heavenly Father!

Dear Nita and Family: May the God and Savior of all comfort be with you at this time. We were so blessed to know both of you through Yokefellows and we praise God for your loving dedicated service to so many all to His glory. We look forward to that great day when we'll eternally praise and serve our Lord forever. Love always in Jesus, Kathy and Ron Merritt
