Rev. Cassandra CLARK - To Mrs. Pearl, Ashley, Floyd Junior, and The Patterson Family: Folk loved him. We simply loved him. Affectionately called, “Reverend Floyd”, he was the only one I know to say about that he invented "COOL", and put "ZEAL" in the word, “ZEAL!” How should it go? Rev. Floyd knew how because he studied The Way and put it into practice for God. If ever you came to FAME Church feeling down and needing to SEE Jesus’ joy, he was the one to watch. A taskmaster he may have been, in the name of Jesus, Rev. Floyd made both a Clerical Team and Worship Service TICK, memorable, enjoyable, rewarding, and spiritually fun to be a part of. I’m gonna miss this Brother. To Rev. Floyd: Hey Dude! Man! We got some unfinished business. How you just gone leave like that? Mister, “Let’s Represent” Brother?!?! It ain’t over. STOMP! It ain’t over! I miss you already. Rev.
Cassandra, Gerald, Cassidy, Gio & Family.
