Mary & Family,
So sorry to learn of Floyd's passing. He was such a great example and a "quiet" contributor to so many people and causes. I am personally grateful for being able to say I knew Floyd and knew of his innate goodness, May you and your family be sustained through this difficult time with your knowledge of Heavenly Father's Eternal Plan.

My deepest condolences to all the Nordin family. Farewell Floyd. Now you're homeward bound while we're still on our mortal journey. As I reflect on Floyds life, I find that he made significant contributions to my life. Perhaps you all feel the same. He was just that kind of an incredible individual.

Floyd, thanks for pseudo-adopting me as a foreign student from Germany at BYU and for inviting me to many of your family events like Thanksgiving or General Conference, etc. Thanks to you and your family accompanying me on my first temple visit. You have been my spiritual family when my own parents were not members of the Church. Thanks for alsways staying in touch and making me feel part of the family. Thanks for your funloving humor and jokes that were able to lift spirits. Thanks for everything.

As I thought what to write in parting, I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite hymns, Homeward Bound. The verses console me. Perhaps they can comfort you Nordin family.

With a heavy and yet hopeful and joyous heart I send you all my and Judith' love.

Daniel Schenk

Homeward Bound

In the quiet misty morning
When the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing
And the sky is clear and red,

When the summer's ceased its gleaming
When the corn is past its prime,
When adventure's lost its meaning -
I'll be homeward bound in time

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I'll return to you somehow

If you find it's me you're missing
If you're hoping I'll return,
To your thoughts I'll soon be listening,

In the road I'll stop and turn
Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end
And the path I'll be retracing
When I'm homeward bound again.

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I'll return to you somehow
