Not sure what to say?

Miss Amy,
I cannot tell you how much Bro. Floyd really meant to me. He was truly like a second father to me, and he taught me many things about the ministry, but he also taught and reinforced many things about living the Christian life in a God-honoring way. I wish I could have just been his "shadow" more so I could have learned more from him. Everything he did was with the utmost excellence- he was dissatisfied with anything less. I would not be here doing what I am doing...

Our entire family was greatly blessed by the services at SWBC and the music ministered to our hearts in each service. I pray God's grace will abound toward your family in this time.

To the family:
The music ministry, among many others, was one of the things that kept Jeff and I returning to Southwest. And now, 12 yrs later, to see our eldest son Jameson open the hymnal and sing along with the music, touches me in such a way that can't be described by anything less than pure joy. To know that his heart, as well as many others, has been touched by the music is a blessing, and says that Bro. Floyd truly loved what he did and also knew the importance of the roll with...

My Dearest Amy,

Words can not express all the feelings that come with the knowledge of Floyd’s passing. Joy of the memories of times past, regrets of the loss of contact over the years, peace in knowing that he is with all of our fathers, laughter in knowing the stories they are sharing. From his ‘smiling’ stomach to his obsession for ‘cleanliness’ to racing him to the front of the choir so that Bro. Christian would let me ‘lead’ the first song at Saturday night singing instead of...

Amy and boys,
For nearly 17 years, I have stood on the top row of the choir I dearly love and sang with every fiber of my being with a director that I consider to be my brother. Thomas and I pray that God will grant you peace and comfort everyday. Just know that we honestly do love you!

Amy,
Alida and I have you in our hearts and in our prayers.

Amy & family,
Dean visited SW Baptist today & said Bro Floyd was not there. I was so surprised to learn of his death on the internet. Although we live in Jonesborough, Tennessee now, we have NOT forgotten the wonderful music at SWBC, under Bro. Floyd. He was one of the BEST! I still remember him getting all choked up sometimes at the end of a great song. He truly had a heart for God & that came through. He will be missed, but we WILL see him again. With love, Nancy &...

Dear Amy & Family,
Words cannot express our sincere sadness at the going home of Bro. Floyd. Our prayers are with you all during this time. We have only been at Southwest Baptist Church for a short while, but Bro. Floyd's love and deep devotion to his music, the Lord, and the choir were what brought us back to SWBC each week. The choir and Bro. Floyd would sing "He Is Alive" and you could always feel the Lord's presence deep down in our hearts and bones, and our souls...

Bro. Floyd was such a blessing. To be apart of the choir he led was such an amazing part of my life. Sometimes I would not sing just so I can hear the beautiful music that was coming out of God's People.

I remember the first time I really met Bro. Floyd. I had to try out for Choir. I was so nervous to have to sing infront of someone. But you know, no matter how I sounded Brother Floyd accepted me and found a place for me to sing. He never once made me feel like I couldn't...
