Floyd, you were one of the finest men I knew. Anyone who truly knew you would agree. Rest in heaven and your memories here on earth will be of your kindness and your humor. Thank God for the time we had with you!
Cindy Young says:
I did not know Floyd, but I have been fortunate indeed to know his wife and 3 of his children. Their character speaks highly of his guidance. I pray the God will cover them all with a quilt of memories for comfort as they begin this grief journey.
