I knew Florence as a child growing up in Flint Hill and as an adult. I always felt inspired talking with her and she always came across as someone that was very comfortable in her own shoes.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and her radiant smile will surely be missed.
Rest Peacefully Dear Heart!

To Artelia and the family of our dear departed Florence. May God be with you during this difficult time. Florence was a classmate of mine, as well as a friend, when I lived in Front Royal.I will always remember the times when she would attend church services with me. May you rest in peace my friend. I know when I see that bright star looking down,it will be you smiling at those of us you have left behind, saying it is ok and I'm at peace. Love Gwynne

O Heaven, O Lord, O Saviour, How did this happen? I can't fathom the will the Lord, but his will be done in heaven as it is on Earth, I reckon, we must submit to Thee. O Lord and Father have mercy on all the faithful departed, Lord. amen
