  • My Uncle Floyd always came to mind as July 23 came around every year. It was his birthday and his first born daughter, Kathy’s. A forever gift they could always share over the years.

    He was kind, and and so proud of his family. You could feel the love when he talked of them. Share those memories with each other and hold close in your hearts. I can still hear his laugh…. makes me smile
    May God Bless and welcome him into the Heavens.

  • To all my Cousins,

    My memories of your father are of his smile and laugh. He always was engaged when you spoke to him and his demeanor was happy! How blessed he was and how blessed you all were to have each other. Your parents are now reunited and will continue to serve you in your memories. Hugs to each of you!
