Dear Flo and Hernandez Family,
The Memorial Service was a beautiful tribute to your Father and his incredible life. He would have been so proud to see his family and friends gathering together in his honor. Floro was a Renaissance man: an intellect, an entrepreneur, a lawyer, a family man, a religious man , a man of character and integrity. His family is an
example of his commitment to humanitarianism, education and altruism. He lived fully, loved much and will always be remembered for his humility, courage, and kindness. My deepest sympathy for your loss. Joan & John Morrow
