Denie and Family I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I have fond memories of her. My father kept me posted on how she was doing. What a blessing she lived a long, loving life. My deepest sympathies.

Florence and I were silent friends. Our lifestyles were different yet her personality kept us close. I enjoyed looking across the street to see her occasionally, then when she was unable to leave the house, I would look out across the way to assure myself that she was O.K. My love for her grew daily and now I am greatly saddened that she is no longer with us. Florence will always be a special person in my heart. I thank GOD I knew her and had her for a neighbor. I probably will always look nightly for the lights in the window.
I miss you Florence.
