We would like to express our condolences to the Taylor family on the passing of Mr. Taylor. I remember going to the Free Methodist church as a kid, being friends with Ellen, and going home with her occasionally and what a loving, Christian family you all were. May God be with you at this difficult time.

Dear Eileen & family,
Our heart goes out to you and your entire family. Floyd will be dearly missed. He was always a spiritual giant in our book, as well as a dear friend. He was always so faithful to pray for our sons -- he took a special interest in them. We're also very grateful that he corresponded with our son, Aaron, while in Iraq-- it meant a lot to him -- and to us. His passing has left a large hole in our life as I'm sure it has in yours. We'll be looking forward to seeing him in heaven!

David, Amy, & Katie Zehnder

Dear Eileen and Family,
I am truly and deeply saddened at the loss of your beloved husband and father. I will never forget the kindness and love you all gave me when I was a child and attended the Free Methodist Church. You made me feel welcome as though I were a member of your family. I still think very fondly of you all. Words are so inadequate at this time but my hope is you find some comfort in knowing how much he was loved.

I wish that I could be there in person, but you are in my prayers today.

I'm sorry to loose a friend someone who I met when I go to church with him. Floyd always has friends because the way he would treat them or even talk to them. There was no stranger to him unless he just has not met them. When I first started going to the same church where I met Floyd in Woodsfield He was the nicest man you could ever know. You had a problem he would lissen, talk to you about it, he was the best friend anyone could ask for. I could see how his family could say he was the best Dad ever because you had to know him, Floyd I know where you are, your home now,no more pain, all happiness because you are with the Lord Jesus we will see you soon my friend Rev.Mark Hutchinson

If Floyd had a password it would be "JESUS LOVES YOU!" He was a really super guy and I know he'll be greatly missed; but what joy to know we'll meet him again some day. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I love you - (and so does Jesus!) Maxine
