What a pleasure to have known Mr Floyd,,Beverly and family members. Mr Floyd spent quiet a bit of time in my office ,he spoke highly of his wife and family, he also spoke often of returning to Mississippi. I feel honored to have known him. He is resting in peace now and awaiting the day he will be reunited with his wife and family. You were a very supportive family. My deepest sympathy to all Love and Prayers Ella

I'm so saddened by the turn of events and what seems to be a difficult walk and passing in this journey. Walking in the valley of a Shadow Of DEATH... THE sorrow of absence; the blessing of HOME.. I so wanted to attend or see Ms. Beverly. Family covid and schedules prevented it; but, nothing prevents my Love and the prayers to The Father in Jesus Holy Name for you all who mourn. HOLYSPIRIT PROMISED COMFORT and condolences in this time..amen
