Dear Aunt Wilma, Floyd, Jr. and Linda, Michael and Dawn, Scott, Kathy,
and all your families,

We are saddened by the news of Uncle Floyd's death, and wish to express our sincere sympathy to all of you at this time. We pray the Lord's comfort and peace upon all of your hearts today. I appreciate how much Uncle Floyd helped out my [Gloria's] mother in those past years, taking her to the grocery store, then picking her up and taking her home and carrying the groceries into the house for her, and other such kindnesses. He was kind and helpful to many people, and he walked with the Lord.
