To Flora’s family,

I was privileged to spend many wonderful moments with Flora during the years I worked at Birchwood. She had the best laugh ever. And she spoke often of the love she had for her family. She had a big heart and I thought of her often in the past few years. She will be missed. My condolences for your loss. She was one of a kind❤️
