I worked with Mr. Floyd at Greater New Galilee. He always had a welcoming smile. He often had Curtis with him in the summer and it was a joy to see him teach him right from wrong. I like that he explained to Curtis in order to help him mature. He was very proud to be a deacon at his church. Family, think of all the great times you all have spent with him. Be blessed.

Thanks for the love you've shown. My fondest memory was when we spent summers with my cousin. After he got off from work, he would put me, Jackie, and my sister Rhonda in the back of his pickup truck and drive us around, wind in our hair. We didn't have a care in the world. Thank you for showing me the heart of a good man.
