Dear Abby, Jon and Wendy,
I was very saddened to hear of your Father's death. So
many wonderful memories flooded my mind. One of mine
and Cleon's favorites is when, in the midst of planning
Floyd's 80th birthday bash, he complained, "Oh, who
wants to be 80 years old anyway?", and your Mother shot
back, "Someone who's 79."

Time and distance negated my ability to bid farewell to one of the most unconditional friendships anyone has ever been honored to share. Floyd's standards of honesty and integrity were beyond reproach. I shall miss him dearly. Lo amo il mio amico

I just learned of your father's death when I received your package yesterday. My sincerest condolences. I visited with him in June. He was frail but we had a nice visit. I remember thinking that visit may be the last time I would see him. He was a keen wit with a twinkle in his eye. I first met Floyd 38 years ago as a law clerk in Jefferson Parish. I have treasured our friendship over all those years.
