I will truly miss seeing and talking with my brother on many issues. Even though we fought like cats and dogs growing up, he has always been there for me. He is and will always be my rock. I can't believe he won't be there, but he will always be in my heart. I love you big brother and truly miss your smiling face and wisdom. It comforts me to know you are no longer suffering, so Rest in Peace and watch over the rest of us.

Linda and Family I'm so very sorry to hear of Floyd's passing. I remember his big smile when mom and I visited. If my memory is working right he was always doing things on the computer. My Prayers for you and all the Family.

I’m very sorry for your family’s loss. Mr. Belcher was always so helpful to me with my back yard and trees. He used to bring over fresh bread and the girls loved it! You are all in our thoughts and prayers. ~The Frisby family
