I met Flora in our neighborhood when I was much younger. She was always so kind. She gave me a job mowing her yard and we spent time visiting and I played with her black dog. As time went by, I married my first husband and found out that she knew his grandmother (Martha-Betty Mennen-White) and they traveled some together. I enjoyed knowing Flora she was always nice and a joy to talk to. My condolences are sent to your family this time of grief.

My prayers and thoughts are with you. Flora was a wonderful woman who had many of smiles. I wanted to share my story of Flora. I have told Connie this story before, but it is in mind every time I seen Flora. In 1989, at the age of 17, I started beauty school during my senior year of high school. There was where I first met Flora. She was my ""saturday"" lady. Every Saturday at 9 am she was there to get her hair roller set by me. She would sit under the dryer and talk loud enough to hear her across the school. I had other ladys, but Flora was my favorite and stuck in my mind years after I was gone. Often I wondered what happened to her. A few years ago I decided after 20 years it was time for me to hang the scissors up and take a new path. Nursing was my new path to walk. While going to school, I got a part time job as a home health aid. What a wonderful surprise and big smile I had to see Flora when I opened the door to her room. She was still the Flora I knew, with her big smile. I sat and thought about how she was there for my first carreer to help me learn when I was just seventeen. Now she was there for me to start my second carreer 20 years later and to learn once again. She will always be in my heart and never forgotten. The family was blesses with a wonderful women....God Bless all of you
