Our sincere condolences to Floyd’s family. He was a wonderful and kind person. Floyd will be truly missed. God bless and may he rest in peace.
My sincere condolences to the family. Life is too short and it goes with a blink of an eye. In Job 14;1,2 mentions that “Man, born of woman,
Is short-lived and filled with trouble. He comes up like a blossom and then withers away; He flees like a shadow and disappears. But God is not blind. He has a beautiful promise that is in Isaiah 33:24 that says And no resident will say: “I am sick.”
My condolences to the family.
