  4. Flo will always in my heart be my G.F (girlfriend) that was our little code knickname for each other when I was little. She will always be an important part of my life and I'll forever treasure the memories I have of her. She was a successful business woman, a loving aunt, daughter, wife and sister, a Godmother, my Nana's best friend. May she Rest in Peace or dance in the heavens and may everyone who loved her find peace and comfort in this difficult time as we say goodbye to such an amazing woman.

  13. Please accept my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one, Florence. May you find comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father knows your pain. He has promised us that soon, all those in the memorial tombs, or graves,will be resurrected to life in perfect conditions free from pain, sickness, suffering and even death. (John 5:28,29). During that time, "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore…" Revelation 21:4. May these promises provide the comfort that you need during this sad time.
