    Aunt Florence was like the sunflowers that she loved. She always looked to the
    bright side of life and she brought sunshine into the lives of others.

  2. Sharon, Ken, Jen, Kimberly & Russell, we don’t need to tell you how much we will all miss Florence. She always and will continue to fill our hearts with love, because we will cherish all the great memories she gave our little family by loving us like she knew us forever and we belonged to her family as well. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful lady with us. She is out of pain and baking yummy cookies for other angels up in heaven while watching over all of you. How wonderful to have a Mother and Grandmother such as her. She lit up so many lives and will continue to do so.

    With Love, Prayers and Thankfullness,

    Bob, Fran, Maddie & Dee

  3. Sharon, Red and I are so sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. I know how very much she meant to you all. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Hold all of those precious memories close as they will mean so much to you in the coming years. I know from experience. Love (cousin) Jo Ann

    We will always have fond memories of Auntie Florence and her ability to always make us laugh…no matter what the situation! She carried a light heart and vibrant spirit which she shared with everyone around her. We will sorely miss her…our hearts are mourning with you. She is truly at peace now. When I told Evan about her going up to God, he lit up and said, “Now she doesn’t have to wear the neck brace anymore!” 🙂 Love and hugs, the Wray Family – Kara, Michael, Natalie and Evan
