The name of Curtis G. Lloyd is famous in botanical and pharmaceutical circles. The Lloyd Library in Cincinnati, Ohio, is named for him and his brother. He is buried in his hometown of Crittenden, Kentucky. The marker is most interesting. On one side it says,
Monument Erected in 1929
By Himself, For Himself, During His Lifetime
To Please His own Vanity
What Fools These Mortals Be
On the other side the monument reads:
Curtis G. Lloyd
Born in 1859
Died 60 or More Years Afterward
The Exact Number of Years Months and Days That He Lived
Nobody Knows and Nobody Cares.
But Somebody does know and Somebody does care! If the very hairs of our head
are numbered, if a sparrow cannot fall without God's notice, then no one is
beyond God's knowledge and care.
