Sorry about Dad, June & Joe, Got to know him in the 80’s when he worked for Sands Industries. He taught me a thing or 2 over the years that helped me along my way. He was a good person. Sorry I didn’t make in to see you on Sunday.
Grace and peace to you all. I have many good memories of Floyd as I was growing up at Moorepark Church. Great memories of the youth group and coming to your home, and even the pet squirrel when you lived on Michigan Avenue. Rejoicing that he is with Jesus.
My sympathy to the entire Eichorn family. I have many great memories playing in the pastures at the farm. Floyd and Marnetta have shown many couples how to “make it work.” Floyd was a great story teller. I will miss the laughter and jokes.
Praying God’s comfort for each family member in this time of sorrow. Condolences and love to you.
My condolences, prayers, and love are with each of Floyd’s family members, especially Joe, Pam, and their family. May God comfort all who grieve because of Floyd’s passing.

A great loss to family and friends I am sure. May God soothe the aching souls as you celebrate his life.
My condolences to all you family members…. Sure have a lot of good memories of Floyd. Joe and I had such good times on the farm as young boys!!
