To the Floyd Family,

My condolences to each of you. Even though I haven*t stayed close to Charles like I should have we always caught up with things at reunions
I have a lot of fond memories of a working vacation in Tampa one year with his sister and her husband, cutting pulpwood together after school, and certainly playing sports in high school. Charles was always quite and soft spoken, you could not help liking him. I wish the best to wife and family, my prayers are with you.

Aunt Diane and family so very sorry to hear of Uncle Charles passing. He was such a pleasant man with a good personality. I remember that he used to call me baby Cathy whenever I was little. Prayers for peace and comfort that only our Lord and Saviour can provide. Love and prayers for all of you.
