  1. Dear Lee, Randy and Laurie, my thoughts are with you all today. Flo fought a hard battle and gave it her all but did not win the battle. I will not be attending her memorial service because of not being up to driving that far with my bad back. I will be thinking about the whole family during this time. Love, Wanza Cox

    • Dear Wanza,
      Thank you for your kind words of sympathy. We love & appreciate you and know that Mom loved you very much as well. We are so sorry that your back has been troubling you. I will pray for relief for that. You are in our thoughts as well.
      Lee, Randy & Laurie

  2. We are saddened by the passing of Flo, one of the most kind and gentle people we have ever known. We cherish the memories of Flo and your family. These memories will be with us forever.

    As requested, we have donated in lieu of flowers.

    • Dear Tisdales,
      Thank you so much for sharing your kind sentiments. We all have so many fond memories of living near you for so many years, and Mom deeply cherished her friendship with Bessie and you all so much throughout her life. We will never forget you all as well!
      Much love,

  3. Dear Lee, Randy & Laurie – The Lee family extends its condolences to all of you. While it has been many years since we saw Flo, she was always a very gracious lady and wonderful mother. May she now rest in the peace of the Lord and in knowing this; give all of you comfort.

    Best regards,

    Dee & Virgil Lee

    • Dear Dee and Virgil,

      Thank you for your kind thoughts, we appreciate your love and support. Mom enjoyed working with you in PTA years ago, and she was always impressed by your drive to accomplish your goals.

      Much love,

  4. Our friend, Flo, was a mighty warrior who fought the bravest battle now, but even more, before this, she made a difference in many lives from the children she taught to the family she raised to the friends and other family members she loved. Sorrow is an insufficient word for this loss.

    • Dear Bub and Cathy
      Thank you for your kind words. Flo was indeed a sweet and brave lady. She loved all the Creels as family.
      Love, Lee, Randy & Laurie

  5. To the Sims Family,
    I had the pleasure of teaching you Randy at Terrace Elementary and also working with Flo at Forest ridge Elementary. Flo was one of the kindest people I have ever known and I have many fond memories of her as a parent and teacher. She will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy to all of you.
    Madeline Frank

    • Dear Madeline,
      Thank you so much for your kind words of sympathy. We all remember you fondly from the Terrace days. Flo always loved and respected you.
      Love, Lee, Randy and Laurie Sims

  6. I again just wanted to let you know that you have my prayers and most sincere condolences. This is a difficult time for all of you. She is happy and no longer in pain. Sorry for your loss. God’s Blessings to all of you.

    Love you all,
    Mike Johnson
