Dear Deb and family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your precious father. I know your pain, and it's sometimes almost unbearable, but always remember, he is with you in spirit. Just talk to him and you will feel his presence around you. That's what I do with Daddy all the time and I know he is with me always. I love you so much and pray you will find comfort in knowing too, he is now with your Mom and other loved ones who have walked the Golden Path to Heaven. God bless and love you always~~

We are so sorry, for you're huge loss. Floyd & Belle represented the perfect couple/family. They had the most awesome, four daughters, whom they were so proud of. Y'all took such good care of them in their latter years. So comforting to know that they are together again for Christmas. We love you all. We have you in our prayers.
