Lloyd Pye died a few hours ago.
This is Lloyd's nephew. Lloyd Pye passed
away at approximately 6:15 PM CT USA. Lloyd was surrounded by
family and died in his mother's arms. The family is asking for
privacy at this time as we deal with the loss. We will post
additional information in the near future. Thank you to all of
his friends and fans for your support, prayers and love. He
loved you all deeply.
That was how he left this physical world. (Note the bit
about 'dying in his mother's arms')
This is how he came into the physical world (from his
autobiography) (with my highlighting):
I was born in Houma, Louisiana, on September
7, 1946, on the leading edge of the famous “Baby Boom,” among the
first crop of offspring born to the young men and women who as
children endured the Great Depression and as young adults survived
World War II.
My mother endured 50 hours of labor in a small clinic before she
died. As soon as she died, I was cut out of her in the
hope my life could be saved. It was, but my head was so
misshapen from the long labor that the doctor felt I was
hopelessly brain damaged. He told my father that his wife was dead
and I would be a “vegetable.” As was acceptable at that time, Dad
was asked for permission to let me "expire" along with Mom so he
could start over fresh from this terrible turn of events.
Dad was wrestling with that awful decision when Mom suddenly
came back to life! She had become one of those rare
individuals who have gone deep into the brilliant white tunnel of
death, seen and spoken to her own deceased father on "the other
side," and returned by her own choice to live on. Miraculously, in
a time before ultrasounds when she had no way to know the gender
of her unborn child, she told the apparition of her father that
she could not stay, she had a son that she needed to return to and
look after. She has since survived five other near-deaths,
none quite as dramatic as that first one at 19, and she is
still alive in her early 80s.
