    So very sorry for your loss. I met Floyd when I was a waitress at cracker barrel. I told him once I was going to seat him on the roof. He was a hoot. I got to know him and his grandson Brandon, as well as his wife pretty well over the years I worked there.Many Saturdays he and his grandson would come in from the auction and I would wait on them every time. I will always remember him and his happy composure. God Bless his soul and his family.
