I was so saddened to hear that Florence fell asleep in death. She was such a good friend to my parents, Judith and George Alatza. She was a dear, sweet lady. I liked her very much.
I had the pleasure of visiting her home in the woods on several occasions with my parents. We enjoyed watching all the birds and wildlife in the area.
I am sure that Florence will be dearly missed by all her family and friends.
Kindly,
Jayne Alatza Moyer
