Dear Bobby and Johnny,

Sorry we can't be there with you both on this very sad day. I wish I was there to say farewell to one of the strongest and wise women I know who was always there for me in everything that I went through.

Please say good bye for me and give her a kiss. I will always cherish the memories I have of her and uncle Bob and I will always keep them close to my heart. I will never forget the last memory I have of her when greeting us after we entered her room to visit with her. I am so glad that I had the chance to spend time with her during Christmas and New Year's with the two girls that one year when I was on maternity leave. Norm has fond memories of them both, as well.

RIP Aunt Florence! Until we meet again. Love you always and forever. xoxoxoxoxoxo

Bobby, Johnny and Family. I am saddened to hear the passing of your mom. She was soo good and kind to T.J and me when we moved to Ontario. I will never forget the times we had playing cards, having a few drinks and spending time with the families. I loved it and loved her and bob so much. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. RIP my dear friend. xoxo

My dear friend Florence (Flo). We shared many good times together & also shared a birthday June 11th. We played a lot of cards with Bob & Tom & a lot of laughs. I think fondly of the times that u & Bob helped us out when Tom & I didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I'm talking about more than 53 yrs ago before my daughter Betty was born & Lori wasn't even thought of yet.

Life goes on & even though after I married Alex we didn't see each other very often we always caught up on our birthdays. Always laughed at all those Newfie jokes.

You r a special person in my heart along with. John & Bobbi. You will be proud of who they have become.

Love dearest friend Flo..

I was very sadened to hear of Florence's passing; she and her late husband Bob and I have been friends for many years. My memories take me back to the great times we had at the trailor park in Port Perry, Saturday afternoons at the Ajax Legion meat draw, 3 day baking sessions every Christmas, dinner at each others homes over the years, seeing our children grow over the years to become the adults they've become today; and the list goes on.......I will truly miss those wonderful times, but my memories will live on. Rest in peace my dear friends Florence and Bob

Florence you always made a good time a better time. A fun lady ,no nonsense, very generous. You will be missed my dear and not forgotten. This from a person who met you a mere 4 or 5 times but obviously you left a great impression.
