    • Ashley,
      We never met you but when I read this it made me cry to know that our Aunt Florence had someone like you to talk to, she never told us. I’m sure she talked to you about us, her nieces in California. Thank you for caring for her when she was in your care. And yes you’re right, heaven gained a beautiful angel. God bless you and thank you so much! Teresa and Kathy

  • Aunt Florence . You were the best aunt ever and I will never forget you and all the stories you’ve told us. I would have done anything to help you or anything I could have that you allowed me to do. keep you safe these last years from you know who. You were the strongest woman I knew and thank the lord for that. You are with Chuck and Danny and the rest of family who love you very much. Your out of pain and we will meet again when god calls on us . Like Betty says you and my mom can wear the Twin outfits and look just alike like before. We will miss talking on the phone with you . And to Harry and Sue you should be ashamed of your behavior and I was the one who called the authorities not your family it was us.

  • Dear Aunt Florence,
    We loved you so much! Me and Kathy treated you like our mom and you told us over and over you loved us so much too. I can’t tell you how much we miss you. I’ll never forget taking you to Monterey in those flower gardens and you and mom were dressed like twins. I loved cooking for you and me and Kathy making you cookies and peanut butter fudge (your favorite) and sending you care packages with cookies and warm gowns etc. We will really miss talking on the phone to you and doing 3 way conversations so we could all talk together. Really wish we could be there to say good bye, just know we’ll always be with you. It’s unfortunate and such a loss that you had family members that didn’t have an ounce of love for you. Boy did they miss out! But I know we made up for it. Rest In Peace, now you’re up there in heaven where you are all together. Love you! 🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏

  • We will miss my dear Aunt Florence she can rest in peace now with her family and watch over the rest of us. My prayers go to my cousins Shirley, Betty and Harry and their family’
