Where do I begin with the memories I have of Uncle Floyd. From what mom and dad have said if it wasn't for Recker they wouldn't have started playing golf which would have meant that I probably wouldn't have started playing golf and wouldn't have gone on to play at the college level and now work in the golf business so for that I say a big "Thank You" to him. Anytime I would see him he would call me Annika or Karrie Webb after famous female golfers. We could sit and talk for hours about golf. One of the best memories is when he drove up to watch me play in the BIG 10 Championship for golf at the University of Minnesota. He couldn't walk alot but the fact that he drove up to watch me play was awesome and I will never forget that. He was such a big supporter of me and golf. Another memory I have of him is playing countless games of cribbage with him, dad and grandpa Martin. When I was home visiting over Labor Day Dad and I played a couple games and we were talking about how you could lay down your cards and Floyd would immediatly know how many points you had. He was that good and very hard to beat. Uncle Recker I know you are in better place now and I will always cherish my memories of you. All my love and prayers to Aunt Mert and family. Heidi Njoes
