David & Tina, I vividly remember one Christmas that all of the family was at your house celebrating. It was such a fun night...& your mother outdid herself, as usual, being the wonderful hostess that she always was, and, of course, preparing a phenomenal meal and scrumptious desserts. I will always remember your mother’s quick wit and, of course, that sharp “Tobey” tongue! Oh, how she made us laugh!! She is now reunited with your father, our grandparents and all of her brothers and sisters. I’ll bet heaven will never be the same! We love her and miss her. May she rest in peace. Love you, Lisa and Gary

David, Tina and family. I was so sad to hear about your Mom. She was the BEST Godmother anyone could have ever wanted! Her knitting and the Xmas stockings she made me will be treasured by me forever. The Xmas's we had in your basement were the best and food was always delicious. She always made funny comments to me and I will never forget her, but at least your Mom and Dad are together ❤ for eternity . love always, Sandi

I am the secretary at Dr. Emmel's Office. I knew both Joe and Florence for many many years. Florence was always smiling and she was so funny. I always looked forward to her visits. May she RIP and finally be reunited with her beloved Joe.
