I am heart broken that I did not know Floyd passed to be with our Lord and Savior. These years I don't think a day goes by that I don't have a quick memory of things we all did together. He helped me learn strong moral values as well how to laugh .
Please forgive me for not being there for you. Somehow I missed the obit in the paper and I know my phone number was not the same. We still live in the river house off Wilkes pt rd. in Green Cove. Every time I look at the river I think of the lake. I think or parents did a wonderful job of raising us with love, joy and strong values.Floyd was my "second' father and I will always keep him in a special place in
my heart, all of you. I love and think of all of you often I still get tearful when I think of my parents. Things will get better, easier but think often of the joy he brought us all. I Love each of you. Love Martha and Russell (904)352-9753. 1426 Wilkes Point RD. 32043
