Message: Mrs. Janette and Family: It was with great sadness to learn of Mr. Floyd's passing. I know Mother and Daddy had a lot of respect for him. My memories are from talking with Mr. Floyd at the Wag-A-Bag when he would sell us tobacco in a day and age where no ID was required and buying popcorn on the sidewalk at the old Past-Time. We knew if we rode up on bicycles late enough, he would give us any bags that were left over. It was a gesture of kindness you remember and try to emulate when you are older. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
