Floyd was a great friend, and we had lots of Laughs at the Beaver Local Bus Garage where he was a driver and I was and am still a bus mechanic. I still enjoy the Flowers and bulbs he gave me to plant in my garden. They still come up every year and it always makes me think of him. He will be greatly missed. My Deepest Sympathy, Phillip Jackson S.r.

It has been 18 years since you left us Dad. I have not nor will I ever forget the day you left. I am thankful that I got to hug you and hear you tell me that you loved me one last time. Then you got in the plane and took off , doing an aileron roll at the end of the runway. You buzzed us and off you went into eternity. I can’t wait till that day comes and our LORD reunites is in the clouds. Until then, I love you and wish you could meet your daughter in law and five beautiful grandchildren. Though they’ve never met you in person, they know you and love you. Until that day when we can all be little again, I love you. Your son, Paul.
