Lloyd Francis at Carnegie Hall

Lani and I are very proud of our friends Lloyd and John. Here is a recent post from Lani's blog:

Yesterday, our dear friend Lloyd (whom we met through Josh) performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Although Lloyd has a day job, he has always been in the performing arts since we've known him. Lloyd is the spectacled, cheery fellow on the far right.

When he and his partner John lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, he performed with the Masterworks Chorale of San Mateo. We attended at least 2 of his performances.

Now Lloyd and John reside in Spokane, WA. We haven't seen them since they moved there and we miss them very much. We keep in touch periodically via e-mail, and that's how Lloyd let us know he would be performing at Carnegie Hall. Pete and I really wanted to go, as we always have a free lodging option in NYC (my little brother Sherman), so the only major expense would be our airfare. But Pete was unable to get the time off from work, so we regretfully had to decline.

So John was kind enough to share pictures from the performance. Sigh. It would have been wonderful to see him perform, as well as an excuse to visit New York. Next month, Lloyd gets to tour Italy (John has been invited to join the group).
