What a great life he had to have had one woman to love for so many years, many children to love and who loved him. To make a living that allowed him to nurture animals and the land and to be cherished in his community. Many people cannot say they lived such a great life as you Uncle Floyd we will miss you. Thinking of all of his family and sending prayers.
