Dear David, Barb and Carl
So very sorry to hear of Floye's passing. She was a great friend and we will always remember and miss her great smile, laugh and spirit. We feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with her and her family.

Floye was a wonderful lady. I met her some years ago when I sold her house in New Athens. We kept in touch for some time and lost touch a couple of years ago. Her family meant so much to her and I am so very sorry for your loss.
