Notes for Loyd Ross Brantley: I remember one trip to Aunt Maggie and Uncle Loyd's with my parents as a young child. Uncle Loyd had diabetes, but was always sneaking something sweet. On that trip Aunt Maggie had made a German Chocolate cake. We had a piece together in the back of the kitchen, listening so Aunt Maggie wouldn't sneak up on us. I later learned that Uncle Loyd was so sick from it that the next day he could hardly get out of bed.
