We will always remember how much fun we would have on our visits to Tampa. Flo would always make sure there was cold Diet Pepsi, Cold Beer, snacks and of course her famous Potato Salad waiting for us! We had such a good time on our day trips to the Casino or the Track. Our dinners were always awesome whether we went to The Club, Bahia Beach, The Crab Trap or even Beef O' Brady's! Our trips to Disney, Biloxi, Vegas and even Upstate NY were filled with laughter and good times. All these wonderful memories will help keep your spirit alive. Rest in Peace Flo.

Aunt Sis, you were a very important member of our family. I have so many wonderful memories going back many years.
All of the holiday gatherings spent with you. Especially Thanksgiving when you let us have the skin off the turkey. And Christmas Day, having after dinner drinks at the dining room table. Always heading downstairs to continue a fun evening with family.
You will always be an important part of my life. May God bless you ❤
