Dear Jackie and All of the Family,
Flo was always so sweet! Every time I saw her she acted like I was just the person she wanted to see. It was fun to share photos with her. Flo was a great example of staying sweet even when life isn’t. We sometimes spoke of the day she would again be able to find her words and how wonderful that would be. She is at that place now - words are coming easily to her today! We prayed together for her family. How she loved you!
