Aunt Florence will be missed greatly. She holds a special place in my heart. One of my favorite memories is when she would pinch my cheek and tell me what a good boy I was to be helping with gramma when she was ill. She would tell me to take good care of her. The smile on her face and the warmth in her heart will truely be missed.
