My 1st memory of my dear Uncle Floyd is my very 1st airplane ride. We didn't get to see him often, but everytime we did it was full of laughs, love and inspiration. His faith in our Lord helped inspire me, and I have admired him and my Aunt Lois all of my life. He will be deeply missed, but his legacy and example of being a servant of God wiil live on in all of us!
The Scheibert family in Toledo will keep u all in prayer as you celebrate his life this week.
With love, Rachelle
