Received a phone call from Floyd early this morning that his wife, Brenda, of 47 years, had just passed away losing a short battle with Cancer.

Floyd has been around for a while and attended all the Southern Bolters Reunion at the Westgate Shopping Center and here at my house and also a small gathering at Ernie's house in Tenn. His wife Brenda "mrstntrucknut" always by his side. She also joined and made a few post here letting us know she enjoyed the trucks and "helping" Floyd when she could. Victoria and I enjoyed a visit from them not long ago. After 47 years of marriage its going to be a tough time for Floyd, and his son Tony. Keep them in your prayers through this difficult time. A more humble and caring couple would be hard to fine. RIP Brenda our memories will last forever.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Yep, 47 years, people become part of us. We just went over the 45th this fall.
Sometimes it seems like it will go on forever, but you never know what lies
ahead when you take the next turn in the road.
Sorry for your loss Fred, as is often said, we're only on loan for this brief span
on earth.

I just talked to Floyd and heard just about the saddest, bravest voice I have heard in many a year. Brenda was a shy, sweet lady, the kind everyone wants to know but rarely does.

Floyd said, "we'll get through this, eventually" with all the guts and sadness so symbolic of the folks from Floyd's part of the country. We did not mention projects or trucks at all! The

hurt is still way to great! My wife of 32 years, Sarah, and I are the lucky ones, we got to meet Brenda, and she and Sarah were soon blabbing like old friends the first time we met.

Why say more? You all know "the story," and words aren't worth a darn here anyway. So, rest in peace and love, Brenda! There are two of us here in North Carolina who morn your

passing, and to you, Floyd, we're here if and when you need us!

I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.This has been hard on me,It was less than a month from the time they found it until she was gone.


If we choose being kind over being right,we will
be right every time.

Remember what is precious to another, may not be to you, but it
is precious nonetheless.
