    Uncle Floyd you were such a huge part of my childhood. You and Dad were always together not only as brothers but best friends. You helped all of us through Dad’s passing. You helped Mom with small tasks around her house when Dad passed. You were a rock of strength for all of us. You were always a strong but gentle man with the best stories. As I am typing I am remembering some of the funny things you pulled on all of us. You will be so missed by me. May your new journey be wonderful, just as you were in life.

    Uncle Floyd! You will be missed! I love you and being part of the Pitman family. A family that is strong and filled with respect and honor. It’s a pleasure to tell others who I belong too. Thank you for your strength and also the joy of gardening that Gramma loved and passed down to us all. You are in my heart and my thoughts always! Love Jackie
