This year started out with a lot of sadness. No one told me about Uncle Floyd so forgive me that my condolences are late.. Junebug Loved his uncles and always told me about visiting them when he was a boy. Girls you are truly blessed to have had your daddy for almost 100 years. I realize that the pain is there and that you want him back but right now I urge you to take hope in God's word that we will be resurrected and see each other again. I love yall. Beebe
