This ancient photo of Lloyd, Iris and me was taken in about 1985-6 at Dayton... VE3XN, next to Iris, was the Canadian DX Association host that night. The good old days of Dayton hospitality rooms at the old Biltmore Hotel, covering 6-7 floors. Everyone got to bed by 2AM and then to the Dayton Arena by 8AM for all the forums, the big flea market and mainly for DX conversations outside the big DX Forum room all during the day ... Times have changed in the past 3-4 decades !! 

I cherish the special, touching letter Lloyd sent me welcoming me "to the club" after my DX Hall of Fame selection in 1983. We remained friends until the end, chatting at so many DX hospitality room gatherings around the USA and at many banquets. RIP Lloyd and Iris. Time flies by so quickly in our great hobby.... I cherish all the DXer and other ham friendships I have made over the past 60 years. Those memories will NEVER wane. Bless our hobby and its lasting memories!
