We will forever miss you and love you forever can’t wait to see you again.
I’m sending prayers out to the whole family and i’am so so sorry for your loss!! I knew some of the family for quite some time and just want to let them know I’m thinking about them!
I only knew Floyd for a few years, but BOY COULD HE DANCE!!! He was full of life and laughter until the very end of his mortal life. In his last moments, he woke up just long enough to give smiles and kisses!! Surely, that was a comforting assurance that “goodbye” would only be a short while and that the Easter resurrection is as REAL and promising as the smile on his face!! Love to all of his family. May the Lord bless you and comfort you with sweet memories until you meet again!!! XOXO, Lanett
I love you grandpa. I will forever miss you. You were always my rock. Thank you for always being there for me. Until we meet again old man. May god take you into his kingdom and finally put an end to the pain and regret you had. May you know that you lived the best life you could and the joy you brought to everyone you came in contact with. I love you grandpa
He was so sweet he let me call him grandpa. And he gave great smiles and hugs. And once I stood by him while we sang a hymn. I will miss him.
I will miss you grandpa. I will always remember the look on your face when you saw me the night before you passed. I love you with all my heart and will never forget how strong of a man you were. May god bring you home with open arms.
Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God’s inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus’ kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences. For more scriptural encouragement please go to http://www.jw.org.
While I didn’t know you’re G’pa, I think I can tell what a kind and amazing family man he was. Josh, Billy and Tim I send our deepest condolences to your entire family. May God be with you all as you say ‘see ya later’ to your Gpa.
