To the Sjaarda family,

We give our deepest sympathy for your loss. The last time we saw "aunt" Flo was at my father's funeral (Gerald D. Brochu) in 1904. We regret not keeping in touch with the Sjaarda family over the years, although I have some fond memories of Flo from my childhood. She is the last of the children of Arthur and Verna Brochu to pass. She was preceded by her sister Florence and her brothers Arthur and Gerald. May they rest in peace.

My sympathy to Flo's family. It hurts us all to loose our relatives.
You all mean so much to me and Flo was a good friend. I will miss
not joining together to celebrate her passing. Hope there is a time we can all be together soon. Love Aunt Verdi

So sorry for your loss but thankful that your Mom has been released from the limitations of this life and ushered into the presence of her Father in heaven. We all have such good memories of Orie and Flo at our "Brower" reunions. It was good to see her and share with her at the Rose Garden whenever I was there to give devotions. As we say "Goodbye" to another of our earthly family, we wish your family grace and peace.
