  1. My sympathy to Florence’s family she was a great lady. She touched many lives and left golden memories. May you be comforted that she is now with Arthur and at rest.

  2. Grandma was a wonderful person and such an important part of my life.

  3. I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to Florence’s family. No matter how long a life is lived filled with love, death still hurts. May you find comfort and peace in the Bible’s promise of that “last enemy”, death, being done away with forever. “He will wipe out every tear from their eye and death will be no more. Neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:3,4
