    Floyd,
    My mind is all over the place right now. I remember so many good times we’ve had and I’m so thankful for them. I’m just trying to sort everything out. I know that you are happy to be reunited with mama and dad and Marty and all of the rest of the family. Meeting Grandma and Granddad. I hope you’re cutting the rug with all the good music, and catching the biggest fish in the sky. Then settle down by a Bosworth fire to laugh and joke and tell stories. Please everyone I love them and miss them. Especially to my Jr. My world is all up there with you it seems. I know I’ve got my kids and grandkids to love and help me through. But my heart will never be the same. Life will never be the same again. I love you so much. We got our tattoos together by Carol Nightingale. You getting sick. LOL I always loved your funny stories about your crazy days at work some times! The corner! The stairs you painted… LOL Sleeping on the rugs… I’ll never forget the pranks we had for each other and how we picked back and forth. Mama and the shoes!! The case of beer you got and then drank with the guy who lost his. The time you paddled all the way back and then Marty woke up.Talk them guys some sign language to take you over there now after you jumped in their boat! Floyd, the memories go way, way back and I’m glad I have so many. You always had my back and I always had yours n matter how many or how big. You did tell on me, but Yu have me an hour headstart. Can’t even get mad at cha. ❤️ I can’t believe I won’t see you again here. But you guys all save me a spot. Watch over me and what family I have left. I have this to do before I join you. Our last words were I love you, talk to ya later. I’m thankful for that. I’m glad for your last visit and our hug. Though it hurts so much, I’ll fill up with all of our memories til my time comes. With all my heart, I love you Floyd. ❤️💔
