  • Our sympathy to all of you in the loss of your mom, grandma, and great grandma. Her smile and sense of humor will certainly be missed. We are thinking of all of you at this difficult time, and will celebrate her in our hearts.

  • Family and friends. I am so deeply sorry to hear about Florence falling asleep in death. She will not be forgotten because of Jesus’ promise found at John 4:28,29. I hope this promise bring comfort during this difficult time.

  • My condolences to Jeff, Jerry and Bill on the loss of your mom. She and your dad were good friends of my parents, Rollie and Elaine Ott, when we were kids. I did not know that your father had passed away also. Now they will be together again. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time.
