Florence was a kind and generous lady who always gave my kids stuffed animals when we would come to visit her and Lucy. She looked out for others and was great company. She will be missed.
I am so sorry for your loss. Florence was a wonderful person. I came to love her during these last few years. My mother Lucy Howard was her room mate at MHCC, and they were the best of buddies. My mothers memory was failing and Florence helped remind her when she could not remember an incident. Florence was a wonderful help to her. She also loved it when I brought my Grand Children in for a visit. They have several stuffed animal to remember her by. God Bless All of you. She will be remembered.
