 It was such a shock to hear of Uncle Floyd's passing. I will always remember his "fun-loving" spirit. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

 I have so many memories of Uncle Floyd and hearing my mother say to him, "Don't 'Darlin' me" when he was picking at her. His passing came as such a surprise, but a reminder that even our "heroes" pass away. My prayers are with his family and friends, may we all find peace in the Lord during this time and always remember his laugh and love for life.
