I am very sorry for the loss of your mom; I send my sympathies and prayers to you and your family.
Flo was such a sweet woman with a cute little laugh; and loved the way she would dance. I will always have fond memories of us around the lunch table, you and your mom and me and my mom, chatting and laughing together. I will miss our times together. She is at peace now and memories of her will linger on.
Fondly Jean Pandolfo

Dear Arleen and Family,
I am grateful that both me and my mom met you and your mom. Your mom is a lovely and adorable woman. I loved having lunch with her at Brudnick and watching her walk to the table, smiling and laughing and scrunching her nose. I am glad our moms are now together. I couldn't think of a better friend for my mom.
Take care,

My family lived across the street on Whitney Drive, for years and years with the Poverman family. We grew up together with their kids. So many memories and good times. Flo was the sweetest woman around, always soft spoken, gentle, and sincere. I know she had some challenges the last few years. I’m so sad to hear of her passing and want to send my love and condolences to the family. May she Rest In Peace with Frankie and Sharon. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
