Floyd will be missed by so many people. June I am thinking and praying for you and your family. Pleas call if you want to talk. I will always remember the years of square dancing and all the lessons at your house. Oh and the Christmas parities with the white elephant exchange. think of all the miles we drove to dance and all the miles we put on our shoes. Great memories. May you be blessed with all the memories, and your friends at this time. Love, Dorthy Eubank
Donna & Dana Schirmer says
Really enjoy Floyd and June being at our dances and all the knowledge they had about the activity and clubs. They served on our committee for the 57th National in Wichita. With Floyd background in publication he was our first and only choice to work on our program booklet. He did a wonderful job! Donna appreciated his help when she became an editor, with suggestion and guidance having served as an editor of the Fed Facts publication. Hoping all those special memories will help to comfort the family during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to June and the family. Floyd will be missed by the extended Square Dance Family.

June, I am so sorry to hear about Floyd. He was my extended partner at square dancing when you were not able to dance.. He was a true square dance friend.
I am still experiencing loneliness from the loss of my son just 3 yrs ago. Prayers to you and your family.
