Dear Neil / Maureen and families,
My deepest condolences to all.
I was sadden to learn that Flo had passed on, but I know that she has gone to be with those that she loved and who loved her dearly. Her strength in this journey comes from her loving family, those here on earth and those awaiting her arrival in a new place. I know first hand of this loving family and have shed both tears of sadness and joy due to the rush of memories that have flooded my mind, they will never leave me. Please know that I am thinking of you all, past and present, and sending my love at this difficult time.
Tim Maloney and family

Dear Mom; we have had an ongoing conversation over many years about this very time. The journey you are on now is yours to choose and the people you so missed over time will all, hopefully, be there to share with you their joy at your new found freedoms from the daily grind we all go through in these, our "golden" years. I miss our daily conversations, I miss your voice, still, I was fortunate to have had you with me for so long. My hope is that you will meet with all those you loved and missed so much these past many years, and when you do, say hello for me. And, if you meet a certain person along this journey, give her my love. I miss you all but someday, maybe, we'll meet again.

Mom - you had more strength, stamina & love than most would ever find in any one person. You loved to talk about your homeland of Scotland & one of my best memories is of my first trip there with you, finally seeing all the places you had told me about for so many years! You & dad were the best parents & I am blessed to have had you here for such a long time but you were tired & your strength was waning, so hard as it is, Rest In Peace, pain free & know that you live on in those remaining behind. Much love always & forever. ❤️❤️❤️

So much love and always a smile when family was around. She cared for everyone equally and always had time for anyone. Loved to tell stories as much as listening to them. I will miss her dearly but I know she is now surrounded by loved ones who have left us. All my love to you Nana, you'll be missed.
