I always enjoyed seeing Granddaddy Floyd cheering on Alex and Abby at all of their dance performances. His smile always lit up the room he was in! As I grew closer with the girls, Nicolas, and Kendall, I truly looked up to Granddaddy and Nana like my own grandparents. The Cauthen family holds a special place in my heart! My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time 💜
