First Baptist Church
Sikeston, MO
Aug 13, 1956
          "This is to certify that I have a distinct recollection of baptizing Floyd B. Herrell at Oran, Missouri when I was pastor of the First Baptist Church there. He was about 13 years old at the time and that has been 35 - 37 years ago.

I know the whole family and baptised practically every one of them. I conducted his father's funeral and later officiated when his mother married a second time. However, in those days, I made the mistake that many young ministers make, I failed to keep a written record. etc. etc.

I have stood in this position in the circumstances of a family's grief many times over the years. That is a part of my profession. But, however close a friend it may have been and many were very close, I was not part of the family. And my sense of loss, however deeply felt, was by its very nature different from that of the family. But today I stand here, not only as a minister, but also, as a son-in-law. I am part of this family.

My own father passed away when I was twelve. So, during my adult years, Floyd Herrell was the only father I have had. All of us who knew him knew well that at times he could be difficult. It would not be fair to his memory or to ourselves to gloss over that. But this was part of him. And we loved him. And he loved us. In times of trouble, sickness, or whatever, we always knew he would be there. There was nothing that would, or could, stand in the way of his concern for any one of us at such a time. And I will miss him very much. We all will.

And at such a time as this, we turn to the sustaining promises of the Gospel. Those promises are expressed in many ways. And perhaps the most fitting for Dad, in the circumstances that brought on his passing, is the Christian promise as it is expressed by St. Paul..."When this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, 'Death is swallowed up in victory.'" The body that had been corrupted and laid low by stroke has been made whole again. In this way Dad has been saved from a physical prison he would have hated.

Dad was a railroad man all his life until his retirement some years ago. For a railroad, movement and the energy of power are the prime virtues. Stroke took from Dad these virtues. But in faith we can believe and know that this disabling corruption which had come upon him had now been transformed to incorruption. Dad once again has the wholeness of life that he so prized and enjoyed. Such is the promise of the Gospel.

Dad believed this himself. Dad's faith did not always follow the traditional modes of expression, but the faith was there. He was never really satisfied with his hardshell Baptist background, but he never quite shook it loose either. Consequently, he never really managed to formalize things in some other branch of the Christian faith that might have been more congenial to his thought and personality. But the faith was there, and he would talk about it on occasion. And he would talk about it with a foundation of knowledge.

So it is not for Dad that we grieve today. In faith we believe and know that he is alive and whole. We grieve rather for ourselves because now we live without his presence with us. And we miss him.

For you, Thelma, still hardly more than his bride, the time was all too brief. But you gave Dad a joy of living he had not known in years. As Dad told you himself when this illness first struck him, "It was good while it lasted."

For you, Muriel, his big sister who knew him longer than any of the rest of us, and probably also, knew him best, he was the kind and open-hearted brother who was always there--close, constant, and unfailing, just as you always were to him.

For the rest of us in the family, and for those who were his friends, it was varying spans of time that we knew him. For his children - Bill, Lois, and Sue - it was all your lives. For brother and sister, Cecil and Margie, it was the same. But, for whatever length of time it was, none of us can help but feel now that it was not time enough. We do indeed miss him.

And missing him now, we realize somewhat the hurt and grief and loneliness that he himself had to face so many times in his life as he lost the mother of his son, lost his son, lost the mother of his daughters, and lost a grandson. Dad was a man well acquainted with grief as those about him whom he loved passed from him. And Dad was a man not emotionally geared to handle grief and hurt very well. It was harder on him than on most. We are all grateful, therefore, and happy for Dad, that in the last months of his life, he found a happiness once again.

The Beatitude says, "Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted." That comfort is not just the assurance of the well-being of the loved one, although it certainly includes that. It is, also, the comfort of our own minds and souls which time will ultimately provide.

The torment of these last ten days right now are deeply implanted within our minds, pushing aside virtually all else. But as time passes, that ugly memory will fade. And in its place will return the memory of better and happier times. In the last couple of days, in fact, I have heard this already beginning to happen. Our legacy already is coming to us.

Whatever else a person leaves behind, his greatest legacy to those who knew him and loved him is the memory of him, the good times known with him, a thousand little things, many of them known perhaps to no one else but ourselves. This is a priceless treasure that we can keep, as time allows all else to fade into the background, if we will but let it.

There were many things that were simply Dad. There were things that were so much a part of him that you couldn't imagine him otherwise. He could play games or become absorbed in a model railroad with all the gusto and enthusiasm of a little boy. He loved to tinker with the inner workings of things like clocks and watches and T.V. sets. To get in the car and drive a couple of hundred miles to go no where in particular was for him simply a Sunday afternoon's relaxation. He could tease his family and his friends with all the ornery delight of a kid brother. And there were inevitably those unpredictable, unexplainable slips of the tongue, such as when he once introduced Sue and I to some friends of his by saying, "This is my son-in-law and his wife." He loved to match wits in trading and dealing. Had he lived in another century, he, undoubtedly, would have been a horse-trader.

These things were Dad. They make for stories that have been told about him wherever friends and family have met for as long as I have known him. They are an inseparable part of him. They remain with us to to tell, and to retell again, with the same delight they have always been told and shared among us. These, together with the memory of his concerned presence whenever things got bad for any of us, are his legacy to us. We are grateful for having known him for such time as we had. He was our husband, brother, father, grandfather, friend. We loved him.
Floyd's wife, Thelma E. Herrell, was the administratrix for the estate.
The probate records from the City of St. Louis reflect that Floyd had the following assets:

1) A house at 4331 Fyler Avenue, St. Louis, MO with a value of $6500 subject to a deed of trust on which there was a balance of $4751.92 leaving a net value of $1748.08.

2) A promissory note secured by deed of trust on property in Lafayette County, MO --- $1139.45

3) Amount on deposit in escrow account number 73220-0 in Equality Savings and Loan Association --- $50.27

4) 1967 Dodge Polora, 2 door automobile bearing serial number DE 23F74262619 --- $50.00

5) Eleven men's old watches --- $165.00

6) Household Inventory --- $581.57

Total Value -- $3734.37
The court ordered that since there was no will and Thelma was the surviving spouse, she was entitled to a $5000 settlement and the balance to be distributing to the living heirs, Lois Krueger (daughter), Sue Altenbernd (daughter), and Mike Herrell (grandson). Since the estate was worth less than $5000, there was nothing left for distribution. Final settlement of the estate was completed on July 27, 1977.

He starts to school in September. Now I have thought of leaving him here, they all are wanting to keep him-----But I dont want them to keep him, I want to raise him the way I want to.

     Dearest Bro:

     Rec Mother's letter this morning. Cant tell you how badly we feel. It doesn't seem possible that this should happen to you. I'm writing because I can say more than in a telegram. I sure sympathize with the family. It must be a great shock to every one. Poor kid, I recieved her letter just after I was married. Never realized that it would be the last.

     You know I wrote to you when you said you were coming up here to bring Florence if possible. I haven't seen you for almost a year.

     God bless you little Bill, but I know he still has a wonderful father. I'd give anything to come down for awhile, but I just came back from a two week visit sure wish you had come while I was there. Though I can't now think I want to be -- will you? You know I've always had the greatest love I could for my brother & wife & son. I often think if I should die & leave my Bill, he's cute now & a year old too. Floyd, my husband is a wonderful fellow. I couldn't want any one better to me. I wont ask you now, but Id sure love to see you if after this grief some time you feel like coming to Cgo. I want you and Al to meet. I often tell him about you. Honey try & think as if shes not gone for always. sooner or later you know we all are called. Give my regrds to the family & Al's also - kiss little Bill - Tell him aunt Lavada said she'd love to see him.

     Can't write now any more so sometime if you feel like writing I'd love to hear about everything. I'm living at Al's home now. The address is 4517 Lyndale. Love to you and Bill & regards to everyone. Goodbye & God bless you Floyd.

     Your sis & brother Lavada & Al

     Dear Floyd;

     I am your new brotherinlaw. I can't tell you in words how bad I felt when Lavada told me.

     I know how I would feel in your case.

     Lavada talks about you so much I would like to meet you. When you come up to Chi call us up. Belshion 1220. I can't think of much more to say, but don't forget to visit us when you come.

     When you are in the mood for writing don't forget us. Lavada looks fine and is behaving for a change, guess the bad weather tires her out.

     Goodbye for the present and hope to see you soon.

     Best regards, Al.13
