    So very sorry to hear of Floyd’s passing. The last time we talked we could tell he was struggling. Now he is at peace and no longer suffering. Linda and I have many wonderful memories of times with Floyd. I worked with Floyd at IBM and will always treasure the times we shared. What a great sense of humor he had! Our sincere sympathy to his entire family who he loved very much. Rest in peace, dear friend.

    Dave and I lived next door to Floyd and Lois in Webster for 23 years. They were our first neighbors. You would often find Floyd and Dave talking for hours and sharing stories. Floyd and Lois watched our daughters Emily and Sara grow up. We have so many great memories that we will always keep close to our hearts. Floyd had a big heart and truly cared about Dave and I and our family. We miss him dearly. When Floyd and Lois moved to NC we were so sad. We always looked forward to his phone calls. They made us smile. I still wait for his call. Floyd was a very special friend to us and for this we are so grateful. Our lives were touched and now we know he is at peace. Miss you Floyd. Rest in peace. Love Dave, Giselle, Emily and Sara.
