Beverly, Earl and family,
I will truly miss Mrs. Florence. I so enjoyed taking care of her the last few years at Mulberry. I grew to love both her and Mr. Buell and of course you two also. I will miss all of you. Mrs. Florence was a lovely lady and always had something to say to me when I was at work. She always wanted me to put her to bed which I did often. She will be missed by all of us especially me. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I can only image that Mr. Buell and Mrs. Florence are having a grand reunion in Heaven. God Bless each of you. I will miss all of you.

Mrs. Adams taught me at Lake Park Elementery in Albany. I remember a tall and very sweet lady. She was the first lady that I had known at that time that had been in the service (I always thought that "was something else") and admired her for that. I will always remember Mrs. Adams.

I had Mrs. Adams for a 6th grade teacher. She was a wonderful lady. I was so sorry to read her obituary in the Albany paper today.
