Florence,
You and Tom are the most special loving couple we know, and our fond memories will always and forever
be remembered in our hearts and soul.

Our friendship will be something we will always cherish and treasure, our beautiful vacations to
Maryland, Jersey shore and our Camping days will be something our children will hold on to and create their own memories with their children, all because of the life you two have created.

We are never born and we never die, our energy (LOVE) lives on forever and ever.

We LOVE you both always and forever!!!! Love Robert and Gina

In 1974 after seeing my sister and Tommy after they had made a Marriage Encounter weekend , it encouraged me and my wife to make a weekend . That weekend we made brought us closer to Jesus and each other . We will always cherish that memory.
