    I love the picture you chose. It's how I remember her the most. I'm sorry I couldn't be there, but am glad Michael could come. I'm so sad, but our parents and grandparents are having a reunion, so that's a good thing.

    My condolences Linda, Jim and Patty for the loss of your lovely Mom. She brought much joy to you three and all that new her. I loved Aunt Flora and know she will be greatly missed by her family, friends and congregation.
    I have never forgotten the good times we had when visiting from California and your family always provided such a warm welcome.
    Now that the Lord has taken her home, she is reunited with all who love her. My Mom Louisa, Adelle, Harriet and Irene are rejoicing today in the Lord. God Bless...
