To Jim, Jan, Vaughan, and Marla. I am so sad to hear about your Mom passing. I know she had a good, long life, but we will all miss her. I have so many good memories of my Aunt Florence. She was fun and I know she loved all her extended family because she treated us cousins just like we were her own kids. She didn't let us get away with anything she wouldn't let her own kids do. Auntie Florence will be with us always in our hearts. My prayers and thoughts are with each of you and I share your loss.
