Sorry to hear of you Mom’s passing. May she rest in peace

Just learned of Floernce’s passing this morning. I remember years ago visiting her “around the bay” with my grandmother Lorraine. Loved her treats! We never know how far the influence, care, love and memories of our loved ones reach but in the way they touch the world they remain with us always. Our thoughts are with you all. As you celebrate her and give thanks for her life may you find peace in knowing she is at rest and at peace. From Florence, Tracy, myself and my family please accept our deepest sympathies.
