To Alberta and the entire Floyd Family,
My deepest condolences to you all on Dick's passing. It was a long time ago when I walked up the driveway at Payne Elevator in 1982 and I began doing repairs with Dick. He was a great repairman, one of the best. He was a great guy to work with and always had a story to tell. I'm sure his fellow Payne buddies (Russ Gentry, Charlie Whaley, John McCarthy) welcomed him upstairs. He will be missed.
