    Dear Family,

    My thoughts are with each of you as you say good bye to your Dad. I grew up in Poor Do, moving at the age of 11. Aunt Pearls family was and is precious to me.
    Floyd was always so kind to me and I know I was a pest. Each of you will be in my prayers Sunday and Monday. I believe that I will see Floyd again in Heaven.
    May god be with each of you.
