To all Florence's Family,
Florence was one of my favorite Aunts. She always had a story to tell of her upbringing or working ethics. Most importantly to me she was there when my husband was ill. Her visits to our home weekly became a friendly ritual, checking up on me and Bob. She was 89 years old at the time and that made a HUGE impact on me. We kept in touch by phone calls and visits. When she got ill, whether it be the hospital or nursing home, I made sure I was there for her. I know she was comforted by my presence when we spoke of heaven. I told her she will love heaven, as what she loves on Earth will be in her heaven and she gave me a BIG smile. She knew her time was limited but still wasted no time to make new friends with Cliff and Joe. In that short time they loved her too. I know that 95th birthday party made her happy. She may have been tired but the smile was on her face. Keep her memories close to your heart and she will be with you forever! Hugs to all of you and sincere condolences to all at this time. Cousin, Gail
