I had the great privilege of knowing Flo for the past 7 years while she volunteered in the office at First Baptist Conroe. She was a cherished friend and a ray of sunshine to all of us at FBC.

I just wanted you all to know that we are thinking and praying for you. “Grandma Flo Flo” was such a beautiful, sweet lady! I always enjoyed any time I was able to spend with her. I’m so glad she can be at peace with our Heavenly Father! Love and Prayers, Sarah Gandee and Family
