What a dear soul. I was blessed to be able to get to know Flo and Sal, the "love of her life." May she rest in peace. Unfortunately I will not be able to be there for the funeral and sing her into God's waiting arms. But she will be in my heart and my prayers as well as the prayers of the monks of St. John's Abbey, Collegeville. God bless you all.

Roering Family, We just finished watching the video. Awesome 😇🥰.It was nice to see the old pictures of family and of Florentine and Sal’s trips. Remember all of the good times and hold them close to your heart. One memory of being at your house that we often talked about was watching Casey Jones on T.V., eating ice cream with chocolate topping and scooping it in our mouth with potato chips. TRY IT!!!!!! Mmmmmm good.!!!!!!
Another time was when your family was in Melrose visiting Grandma and Grandpa Koopy, and JoAnn and I took Randy, Sandy and Russ to the Cafe for malts. We enjoyed the malts and everything was going good, until we left the Cafe. Russ plunked himself down on the sidewalk and wouldn’t get up. Russ, if you look at pictures of yourself at 15 months old, you could see why carrying you back to Grandma and Grandpa’s house was going to be a BIG chore. We did make it home , but not without a lot of effort and some good laughs.
Always continue to hold your Mom and Dad in your hearts as God welcomes Florentine with open arms into his kingdom. Affectionately, Carol & Butch Klaphake & JoAnn Zenzen.

My deepest condolences to all of Flo`s family. Flo was a wonderful neighbor for the 20 years that I lived one door down from her and Sal on Boxwood Ave. She was always outside doing something in the yard which she cared very much about and always looked so nice. She had so much energy.
