    I was deeply saddened to hear about Floyd. He has been a special friend to me and when my late husband, Larry Tribout, was introduced to him and found out he also worked at Parrish, they became very good Friends. Saturday meetings at KJs with Joe, Vicky, Larry and myself are cherished memories. If there is a service or some kind of memorial, please let me know.
