  1. Please know that your dad’s soul didn’t die, only his earthly carbon body wore out. Floyd was an amazing man. Your dad worked hard his whole life.
    Floyd was a solid husband plus an awesome father. As you know, death is only the wearing out of our carbon body, Floyd’s soul continues on. You will be with his soul and all your other loved ones’ souls that have already crossed but only in your own time.

    Floyd was such a loving and caring husband, father, and grandfather, that I am sure he will send you a sign from the heavens. The sign Floyd sends you and the rest of the Koscielniak Family, may not be obvious to everyone. (I know how much family meant to him, so I’m sure he will definitely send a sign.) The sign Floyd may send could be in many forms; maybe his favorite animal, a bird, butterfly, or rainbow, or it can be a favorite smell, food, or taste that reminds you of a happy lasting memory. Signs can also come in dreams, especially if you or a family member cry yourself to sleep.

    Again we are so sorry for your loss.
    Love, Gale and Chris Renkiewicz
    Patrick, Kyle, Connor, and Colton
    Plus. Pat’s son, our Grandson Rylee.

  7. Many Saturday nights spent at the K of C , cleaning up after weddings. Floyd always had ” It couldn’t be better ” attitude. Hope heaven has a Mellow Yellow and a cold beer for you. Rest peacefully good friend. You will be missed.

  8. I’m so sorry for your loss. Saying “Goodbye” is so hard, but now he rests with Aunt Felicia. I’ll always remember Uncle Floyd with a smile that lit up his eyes, a kind man.
