Hi, my name is Caydence and this is my cousin Drew.
Floyd Truman Sallee was our great-grandfather. We all love Truman so much. Our Papa Truman was well.... SPECTACULAR! He was amazing, sweet, generous, kind and a caring man. He was a soldier in WWII. He drove a tank and sat in the birds nest. He helped and saved many people's lives. He was a peaceful man.
He was in a lot of pain when our great-mother Willie passed away. She's been gone for about 5 yrs now. I know today they're up there dancing and that makes me smile.
I didn't believe my mom when she first told me about Papa Truman passing until she started to cry. Then, my heart broke into pieces. I know that he was having a hard time, I know now that he's better. When Papa Truman won the lottery he mentioned me in the article for the newspaper...to me that will always be something special.
I will miss my Papa Truman very much. But it makes me happy to know that he's reunited with all his loved ones and his wife. We all know that they've already been in about 10 arguments since he's been in heaven but as you know that was classic Mama and Papa!
I love you and always will... You're gone but will never be forgotten

We will forever hold you in our hearts 💕. While being happy you get to be with your beloved wife. Once again dancing with the love of your life. I will forever be greatful for having you in my life. My love for you will never fade. Until we meet again. I will make you proud. You taught me so much in life. I hope to teach my granddaughter as much as you taught me. I’m so glad you got to meet her and love her.

With love in his heart and a pbs in his hand. This man has accomplished so much in his life. He was a real American hero. Loved his baseball ⚾️ loved his chair. I remember sitting on his lap in his chair every Sunday as read the comics to me. I remember being a brat in a store one day because I wanted a stuffed eyore and him getting it for me. The man that took me to my first bar. The man that taught us respect, responsibility, and how to love with all your heart ❤️ and to never ever wear Socks that have holes in them.
