    I would like to extend my sympathy to all of you. I have many good memories of hanging out at your parents place. I think back and wonder how your parents tolerated all of us. I remember how Floyd’s mechanical talents helped us build our Green Giant go cart, and fix up other things we found at the “dump ground”.
    I am sure you have many memories.

    Lots of good memories of Verna and Floyd and their well behaved children in both Boyd and Cottonwood. I am sorry they are both gone now. I know they are both missed a lot by all their children and grandchildren. I remember how impressed I was by his harmonica playing when I was a kid. Funny the things that stick in your mind.
