News from Verlie Floyd's Wife
It is with great sorrow that we the Sonnier family inform you of the passing of Floyd Sonnier, our husband, father and friend. Floyd died on April 6, 2002 from a sudden heart attack while visiting Omaha, NE for the christening of his first grandbaby, Matthew. His genuine kindness, joie de vivre, and love of family will be sorely missed. His spirit will live on in the legacy of his beautiful artwork and in our wonderful memories.
