I remember many visits to the HR Department over the years by a jovial and ever smiling/laughing Mr. Floyd Sims who would continuously hold our interest with never ending stories of cattle, farming and much of a life spent on the road. He was not only a building block for Pine Valley Distribution but a cornerstone on which it was established. Now sadly, another voice is gently silenced by time and it will be missed terribly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Judy in the hopes that your friends, family and faith will serve to help you through this.
