Louise, Mildred and families,
We were very saddened to hear about Flossie. We have known you all a long time and have thought often of all. Our regrets are not being together but very little over these last years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in these next days.
Love and prayers,

I am so sad that Flossy has passed on. I knew her because our church (Living Mission) would come every 3rd of the month to play bingo. I would always stay by her side to help her hear the numbers. I loved it when she told me how beautiful and sweet I was. She loved her big sunglasses and necklaces on the prize cart. She always sat at a table with no one on it usually because she wanted to have a whole lot of room for her prizes, or at least that's what she said. :) But the sweetest thing is that she cared, she cared for our whole church.
