Mom was our world and we will love and miss her forever.

I do not have enough kind words to ease your broken hearts. The death of a mother is so difficult to accept because death is so final. I am sending the greatest of condolences to each of you. Heaven is a happier place tonight as I know Flo was welcomed to the banquet table under escort of our Savior. So many who have gone on before her were waiting for her arrival. I wish you peace in your hearts as you begin the next chapter in your lives and hope you hold all the great memories close.
