So sorry to hear of Flo's passing. I remember her as a very kind person who was so proud of Mark.
Even though my interaction with the family was for only a couple of years, and so long ago, I was still blessed by knowing you all.
I have often thought of Mark and my friendship with him and wish I could have been there after his passing.
I'm sure Flo is in Jesus's loving arms and pray for peace for Glenn and the family.

Glenn, Bret, and all the family: It was with sadness that we learned of Flo's. passing. She was a great person and friend. Her laugh and sparkle in her eyes endeared her to all who came to know her. Marilyn and I will long remember the many meals that we cooked in the church kitchen. Hard work yes, but Flo made it easier by her wit and determination. God bless all of you. Richard and Marilyn
