  1. Laura,
    I’m so sorry to learn of your Grandmother’s passing. You and your entire family are in my prayers.

  2. In the mid 60’s I met this great lady. We worked together and became fast friends. That relationship changed to family when her John married my sister
    Fran. Florence was a sincere, genuine, generous and gentle lady who never changed over all these years. She will be greatly missed both as a family
    member and a friend. I am saddened by her going but thank our Heavenly Father
    that she did not suffer pain in her last days. Rest peacefully loved one
    and friend and thank you for making so many lives so much richer.
