I wanted to take a minute and say while I only met Flossie one time at Cheri's here in North Carolina; I have never forgotten her she was very kind to me considering we had never met and she made me feel welcome with all the family that was there. I watched the tribute video and I know by seeing all the relatives in that video she will be missed. I am praying for the lord to help you all in this time of grief and celebration of a life well lived.

I wish for you all love, light and blessings!

To my Angel in heaven. ( Flossie ).. I for one will never forget your kindness that you always showed me from a young boy all the way through my life. Even when I hit some bumps in the road and wasn't always doing the right thing you didn't judge. You still always showed me kindness and love with a big hug when ever we saw each other!!! Thank you Flossie for loving me when I didn't love myself!!!! I will miss you but always have you in my heart!!! Say Hi to all our loved ones up there and we shall meet again!!! LOVE YOU ALWAYS!!!! May you rest in ☮️.
