Mark J. Hughes I know how much he wanted to help young children with their vision, and how he thought the world of you and what you have accomplished for children's vision in a relatively short period of time. Keep up the great work.

Dr. Irving Bennett Enclosed is a donation in memory of our departed friend, Floyd Woods. He was such a compassionate and thoughtful person.

For one who has written professionally most of my life, I find it unusually difficult to find the proper words to express my inner feelings about the passing of one great human being…a person who was a credit to his family, to his country, to his profession, to society.

I keep thinking of a poem I learned 50 years ago that expresses better than I ever could my feelings about Floyd. It went something like this:

Let the thousand trumpets blare,

Let the music surge and flair,

I would hear no song if Floyd paused from playing.

Let the words and music cease,

Let no sound from any piece,

I would delight in song if Floyd continued playing.

Floyd Woods may not have played a musical instrument but he did make music in so many other ways. And he made a really substantial difference in the lives of so very many.

He truly - very honestly – will be sorely missed.
