Searcy, Lloyd W.'s Guestbook

When I was a very young girl, Chandler Baptist Church had a roller skating party. I was very unsteady and unsure of myself on skates. I was certainly not enjoying myself. That changed in an instant when Lloyd Searcy reached down and tucked me into his arms. My momentary terror at looking up and seeing that huge man, melted into pure joy as we flew around the wooden floor. I was so happy and felt so safe and secure. Years later, when I was a teenager, Lloyd pastured a horse on the farm where we lived. He put a saddle & bridle in the barn and told us we could ride whenever we wanted. Lloyd’s personality showed through his horses. This horse neophyte felt as safe and secure on Dusty as I had felt flying around that skating rink. I never saw Lloyd that he didn’t acknowledge me. “Well hello, Brenda.” I have never roller skated or ridden a horse without thinking of Lloyd Searcy. He was our very own gentle giant.
