Very sorry for your loss, i can only imagine the hole Lloyd's absence will create, and pray you will find comfort in the assurance of salvation and looking forward to the day we will all be reunited in the presence of our Savouir and Lord.

Dearest Charlotte, Stephen & Katrina, Daniel & Vanessa. My heart is breaking for you as you grieve the loss of Lloyd from this earth! When I was with OM, Lloyd was one of my very favourite OM leaders and my favourite Bible teacher!  Lloyd was a gentle, down to earth, but strong and smart. I remember the first time I met him and you was on the Doulos in 1999. It was the first time I heard him speak when he took the morning devotions. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the words coming out of this quiet, gentle, yet smart, witty and strong man! I especially loved it when he did the teaching for the staff at Mosbach during the GO Conferences and preached at the Sunday morning services. He brought the word of God to life for me.   I will also never forget the many times I had dinner in your home with you and Lloyd. You both made me feel so welcome in your home. Thinking of you and praying for you. Sending you lots of love. Liz xx

God never did let you go unnoticed. You kept on Keeping on. Wantoks in PNG SALUTE YOU and we dearly adored ypur service and important role you played In our faith. RIEP. Lukim yu long heave .

Dear Charlotte and family. My heart goes out to you all as you grieve the loss of Lloyd. I will always remember the first time I met you both on the Logos ship at Sinoukville, Cambodia. Your friendship is much appreciated. May God fill your hearts with His peace at this time. All my love Carol

Much much love to you all xxxxx

Dear Charlotte, my deep condolence... I almost never had conversations with Lloyd, but I will always remember what Lloyd shared in the director's devotion at the beginning of my time on board: Halak - journey of faith. It's a great impact for me to keep going in God's calling. My heart is still aching while I'm writing this, but I feel peace knowing Lloyd had finished well in his Halak with the Lord and we will meet him again one day. May God comfort you and your family with His abundant love, just like you always show His love to others. *Hugs*

Dear Family, I remember Hilde Kirsch Strasse with fondness and remember Lloyd as being kind and respected. He had a warm smile and quiet humor that shone in his eyes. What a legacy of faith and love he has left behind! Praying for each of you as you grieve - praying God's comfort surrounds and sustains you. Thankful that Lloyd is now pain free, fully alive and basking in the presence of God.

I hold onto our memories The ones that are so dear To try to keep you always close Now you are not here You were called, it was your time But it is so true You have left a legacy There was no one like you You were very special And I want to say I feel lost in many ways You are not here today But I will never forget you And I know I have been blessed To have you for my Brother Because you were the best…

Dear Family, Yes, Lloyd has arrived in the presence of Jesus ahead of us! What a glory! Yet, what a loss to you and us as we are going to miss his presence on this planet! My experiences with Lloyd while he was doing line-up work for the Logos in Korea have eventually led me to join the ship Logos in 1981. Two years with OM have changed my life path, which I never stop thanking God for. Since I came back to Korea I have been involved in missionary training and later MK ministry, and now member care. I am sure Lloyd is still living in so many hearts of people whom he touched and blessed around the world, as Jesus said, "... Anyone who believes in me will live, eevn after dying". Here I attach an old photo taken while Lloyd did line-up in Korea in the year of 1980 when he was still single.

I have great memories of Lloyd. He was always very kind and generous. Had an infectious smile. I praise God for the legacy of his life. I'm reminded of CT Stud who said "only one life, 'twil soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last". My deepest condolences to the whole family.

LLOYD AND HAROLD SPOKE REGULARLY OVER THE LAST 2-1/2 YEARS EACH IN THEIR OWN HOSPITAL BEDS. . LLOYD ENCOURAGED HAROLD IMMENSELY . IF HAROLD COULD SPEAK NOW HE WOULD JOIN ME IN SAYING 'OUR HEARTS JOIN WITH YOUR HEARTS, OUR TEARS WITH YOUR TEARS. DEAR FAITHFUL LLOYD MAN OF GOD WHO SERVED HIS LORD, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND MANY THOUSANDS OF POOR AND NEEDY WITH HUMILITY. WE THANK GOD FOR EVERY MEMORY OF LLOYD AND CHARLOTTE NICHOLAS

Dear Charlotte, We have so appreciated and enjoyed your emails and photos keeping us updated on your ministry. We were honored to be prayer partners with you. We are so happy that you and Lloyd were able to rest and relax at our lake house and remember with fondness our time together then. I will never forget his gentle spirit and infectious smile. He will be missed. Leaving you in the Lords hands now to sustain and comfort you during this time and so thankful for the Hope that lies within us because of Him. Hugs, Dennis and Caroline

We love you! -Rangiawha's

You gave no one a last farewell, Nor ever said good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, only God alone knows why. A million times we will miss you. A million times we will cry. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, that no one else can fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. We will meet again someday, I know in a better place. I thank God He made you our brother While you were here on earth. Till we meet again, Lloyd, we know you are watching over us. Much love and sadly missed, Bevan and Trudy Nicholas xxxxx

Dear Charlotte and family, Our condolences for all of you. Again: what a shock. Last Monday Lloyd hospitalize and today Lloyd has passed away. What to say now… we are silent At the same time we pray you will receive (once again) lots of strength, comfort and peace. Yours because of Jesus. Douwe and Yuriko Scheepsma

Dear Charlotte and Family Word cannot express how I feel. Lloyd played a big role in my life when he asked me in 1986 on the Doulos in Cape Town to do Line up for the ships. My prayer and thoughts are with you as a family during this time. Thank you Charlotte for your faithful updates. Frederick Kammies (Jügesheim Germany)

Dear Charlotte, Steven, Katrina, Vanessa and Daniel, Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you say Farewell to Lloyd, a faithful servant of the Lord. May God's grace surround you on every side.

Not just a call......but a promotion!!! Our prayers are with you especially during this time - we love you!

Charlotte and Family, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are heavy, as are yours today. Lloyd was such a blessing to us. We extend the open invitation to you, Charlotte, to come any time for a visit in Texas with us. Love and Prayers, Russ and Donna

To the niclous familyi give you my love.

The unforgettable evening that I spent with Lloyd and Ross Evans when Lloyd was in the mid-stages of the purchase and equipping of the Logos Hope. Lloyd's grasp of all the issues involved and his utter confidence that 'God was in all the details' greatly reinvigorated my sense of ministry and mission at that time. To me he was the quiet achiever who trusted God's will implicitly. Lloyd's impact on the world today has been immense. May God bless his family and colleagues.

Quote Some people live for a title Some people like Lloyd live for a testimony !!

Liebe Charlotte, liebe Kinder und Schwiegerkinder! Es sind Tage des Abschieds von einem Mann, den ihr sehr geliebt habt und der Euch allen sehr fehlen wird. Ich bin Gott dankbar für das Leben von Lloyd und seinen tollen Einsatz für OM Ships. Erst in der Ewigkeit werden wir das ganze Ausmaß des Segens sehen. Gerda und ich beten für Euch. In herzlicher Verbundenheit Euer Manfred

Dear Charlotte and family, Lloyd was my first leader in OM Ships. He was a great leader who gave space and opportunity to grow and develop. I have since had the opportunity to serve in leadership together and then to give him leadership. In all of these I have learned much from him about God, about God's ways and about leadership. We rejoice in the life God gave and pray for you all in the vacuum left through his death. My God's peace and presence guard and comfort you at this time. Sincerely Peter Nicoll.

Liebe Charlotte, gestern habe ich von Lisa Svatek erfahren, dass Loyd gestorben ist. Es hat mich getroffen. Ich habe Loyd geschätzt und ich kann mich noch gut an 2, 3 ermutigende persönliche Begegnugnen mit ihm erinnern. Ich finde, dass er auch ein guter Bibellehrer war. Ich habe euch beide zuletzt bei eurem Wiederbesuch auf der LH noch während der Krebstherapie gesehen, das war für mich ein starkes Zeugnis. Ich wünsche Dir, dass Du kräftig, ehrlich und mit aller Zeit, die Du brauchst trauern kannst. Der Herr Jesus Christus weint mit Dir. Verbunden in Seinem Geist der Liebe und der Hoffnung des ewigen Lebens. Martin Kroath (aus Österreich, onboard LH from 2014-16)

Dear Charlotte, I feel I don`t have words to write... In a certain way I just didn`t expect this to happen, so fast! We do feel so much with you and your sons and daughter who lost such a precious Father. But we also trust God to comfort you and to carry you through this great loss. And we do rejoyce for Lloyd to have already arrived at home, for ever. Yes, he is with Jesus, and this is better than anything we can desire! I continue to pray for you. Trudi and Domenico

Liebe Charlotte mit Familie, wir beten für Euch und sind dankbar, was der Herr durch Lloyd alles zu seiner Ehre tun konnte. Er schenke Euch viel Kraft und Trost. Wir sind mit Euch durch unseren Herrn Jesu verbunden. Klaus und Anette

The Nicholas Family: These are the signs along with photos that adorned our doors in OM, but as we all know when we entered into the room it was the people within that changed lives, there was much more than the name on the door. Lloyd was a fantastic and humble leader to which we all enjoyed our time with and that will be missed. You all know him far better than any of us and I thank you for sharing him with so many of us over the years. Our time together with our families, Lloyd as Director and myself as Captain, was a significant part of my walk with GOD. During that time we believed and attempted great things which were blessed and came to pass. As in those years our house is always open and you are all welcomed. The Line-up man has once again gone ahead and we are all waiting for that welcome and to see their faces again. Anne & I have rejoiced with you before and we grieve with you now. With all our love, The BIRD Family.

It is never easy to say good-bye... Lots of love to Charlotte and families.

May the Angles of the Lord sound their Trumpets You are all loved Charlotte may you feel the tears wiped away in the arms of Jesus. Pray I still hear from you still in time. Deep sadness for you all, even though Llyod has gone home to be with The Lord. Keep safe Jesus loves you all Hugs and much love Annette

Director's Devotions on the Logos Hope were usually our favorite devotions, especially going through the life of Abraham. HALAK- "Walk with God and trust in him. - God will walk with you and bless you." Lloyd "halak"ed with God. We appreciated his godly leadership and example he was in addressing failure/sin - we have yet to meet another Christian leader who does it in such a godly way. Also, it was amazing that we could always count on Open Cabin at Lloyd + Charlotte's after each service they were on board. We are praying for you all!

Lloyd was not one for giving too much away, especially when playing cards or board games with the family. He enjoyed the family banter and I’ll always remember his inclination not to devolve a game’s secrets too early. Always in our heart and memories.

Liebe Charlotte, Daniel, Vanessa, Steven & Katharina, Ich bete, daß Gott Euch viel Kraft und Trost schenkt, besonders für morgen und daß Ihr SEINEN Frieden und SEINE Arme um Euch spürt, die Euch halten, auch in der Zukunft, wenn Ihr Lloyd besonders vermißt in seiner liebevollen, fürsorglichen und resprektvollen Art. Alles liebe von Heidi Menges

We were saddened to hear of Lloyd's Homecall. Our love and prayers are with you and the family. While we know he is with his Lord and better off there is a great gap and loss for you to bear. please know He knows, He loves and He cares for you.. He will be there for you in the early days of loss and in the years ahead.. Blessings and Christian love.

Dear Charlotte & family, My condolences goes out to you. May our heavenly Father gives you the comfort and peace, knowing that this is not goodbye, but "See you later, mate!" Thinking and praying for you. Much love, Cleo Clara. (Logos Hope February 2013-July 2016)

Dear Charlotte, Wishing God's comfort for you and your Family. Praying for all of you at this time Adeline & Benjamin Hong (Singapore)

Liebe Charlotte “he arrived” - nun ist Lloyd ganz in der Gegenwart Seines HERRN. Meine Gedanken und Gebete sind mit Euch in diesen Tagen des Abschiednehmens. Ganz besonders auch am morgigen Tag. Sibylle

Tribute to Lloyd Nicholas. I first met with Lloyd was about 40 years ago when we both served at M. V. Logos. Lloyd was still single at that time if my memory was correct. He servred at Ministry Department, did a few of line up assignments, later on in charge of Programmes. After my time with OM ships, I was at sea for further 3 years then came ashore and settled. Through the years, I have kept in touch through OM newsletters for further development of the ship mimistries and other land base teams work. In 1999, I was serving at the OM New Zealand Board, met up with Lloyd n Charlotte when M.V. Doulos visited Auckland, Lloyd was the Ship Director. As Ship's Director, he represented the ship to meet with local Government officials to open ship programmes in each port visit, presenting Holy Bible to the officials, he is Gospel Ambassador. December 2013, our family met up with Nicholas family co-incidemtally when we visited Hong Kong and M.V. Logos Hope was also in Hong Kong. Lloyd n Charlotte were so hospitable, extending their warm welcome for our short visit, we were impressed of their humble servanthood. Lloyd has gone to be with the Lord, much sooner and earlier than anyone expects. Surely he is now resting in peace. The crown of life will be his rewards. Alfred Choi Served as First Officer on M.V. Logos 1978 - 1979

Dear Charlotte I am humbled to have crossed paths with you and Lloyd via OM. God is good and has blessed my life with your fellowship and friendship. Thank you for your encouragement and example of faith. Sincerely wish I could be with you all in person. With much love, prayers and tears.

Your legacy lives on here, while you live on in our Saviours presence. You are missed for a time, but we will meet again.

Dear Charlotte and family It was an honour, privilege and blessing to come have known Lloyd in this life. He showed a huge heart for the Lord and we hugely benefited from the sharing of his faith and knowledge of the Lord and His Kingdom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and the coming difficult times. May the Lord's peace be with you.

Dear Charlotte and family, our love reaches out to you at this time. Our love though, is only a small reflection of our God's great personal love for his children. Lloyd is now with his Lord, we who are here today can also rest in His love because in his heart he sees you all as very special in his love. God bless you today and forever.

On this day, when you farewell your husband and father, may you know God's presence and power in a deeper way than ever before. In the midst of your sadness, may you be able to remember happier times and truly celebrate the amazing man that he was.

Our love to Charlotte and the extended family. Lloyd was a great mentor to me in the early days of OM Ships. We "lined-up" Beirut together in 1982. I learned so much from Lloyd and our lives have been richer for our friendship. Charlotte you are amazing and are in our prayers as you mourn the loss of a husband, father, father-in-law - and a wonderful gracious man of God.

Dear Charlotte, Stephen, Vanessa and Daniel, Peace to you all today. May the Great Lord wrap his arms around you as you say, not goodbye, but “See you again soon.” Good husband. Good father. While the rest of us say “See you later, good and gracious leader, good friend, true disciple”. While we all know the Good Lord will be saying to Lloyd, “Well done Good and Faithful Servant”. Bless You all today and till you and we all see Lloyd again. In Jesus Name. Lots of Love... Stephen Jolly

You are very much in our thoughts and prayers today. We do not "sorrow" as the world sorrows but it is certainly a "sadder" world without Lloyd in it. We honor and give thanks for his witness, service, friendship, his truly Godly living - how precious to have known him and we continue to support you all in our prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family at this sad time. May the memory of Lloyd bring you strength and peace.Our deepest Sympathy, the Garvey family

We are missing Lloyd's love and support in life. And for his friendship. We are so grateful for him. We wish our deepest of sympathies to Charlotte and Steven<3?Katrina, Vanessa and Daniel at the loss of husband, daddy and favorite cheerleader in life. We wish our sympathies to Lloyd's family and we pray for God's grace and comfort these days.

Dearest Nicholas family, I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a great guy and well loved by many! He certainly made his mark for Jesus on this earth. May you be comforted well by our Lord Jesus Christ. Lots of love, Cat Turnbull (Doulos 2002-2004, 2008)

Liebe Charlotte, Steven, Vanessa und Daniel, es tut mir sehr leid, dass ihr schon relativ früh Abschied nehmen musstet von einer der wichtigsten Personen in eurem Leben. Ich wünsche euch viel Kraft, aber auch viel Zeit für das Trauern und Abschied nehmen. Ich erinnere mich noch an viele Begegnungen mit euch und Lloyd während unserer gemeinsamen Zeit auf der Doulos (1998-2000). Lloyd war mir ein großes Vorbild wie dienende Leiterschaft aussehen kann. Danke, dass ihr ihn so oft mit anderen geteilt habt. Gott tröste euch und segne euch. Eure Heike

Liebe Charlotte, Steven, Vanessa und Daniel, es war gut Lloyd als Vorbildfigur auf der Logos Hope miterleben zu duerfen! Ich bete, dass euch der Trost des Vaters im Himmel durch diese schwierige Zeit tragen moege und immer im richtigen Moment ein Licht durch dunkle Wolken brechen moege! Gottes Segen! Matthias
