Mona and family - We are so sorry to learn of Floy's passing. We loved her laugh and her wacky sense of humor. She always had a great story to tell, and loved to tease her water peeps. We so enjoyed being included in her amazing birthday celebration. We are keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know if we can do anything for you.
