Josie Harris was born on January 17, 1980; she was just 16 and he was 19 when she met Floyd.
When our eyes met I knew and he knew this was no ordinary meeting. We were at the local bowling Alley in our neighborhood in Las Vegas the first time I saw him. I was 16 and Floyd was 19. This bowling alley was a place where kids who were under the legal age hung out and it was a carefree, beautiful time, even though we were struggling through our teen years.”
They dated for the 12 years during that time Josie gave birth to his three children, well, four actually.
Here I am I’m a woman with 3 young children and another child that is out of another relation and I’m trying my best. I’m trying my best to keep my family together. Said Josie Harris during an interview.
