They don’t make neighbors like Floyd anymore. He was always ready to help tune up my lawn mower, keep an eye on the house if we were gone, or just shoot the breeze. We’ll miss having him around.

From Joseph and Trish Emmons...

We miss seeing Floyd sitting on the porch across the street. He was a good neighbor and will be missed.
