  1. CandleImageHello grandma. I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye to you before you passed away because of what happened with my father. You were always so nice to me from what I can remember and I love you a lot. You were so much better to be around than my other grandma because she wasn’t nice to me at all. This is my first time seeing this guest book and I didn’t even know your last name until tonight. I wish I could’ve said goodbye to you because you meant a lot to me. I hope you’re doing good up there and I hope you’re watching over me because I always like to think you are.

  2. It was truly an honor to be able to serve your family during a very hard time. Your family is truly a great one.
    Montgomery and Steward Funeral Directors

  3. My aunt was always quick to smile, joke, share a funny memory; even through the hardships of illness. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. My Auntie Flora was always one of my favorite Aunts. I love her very much because she always gave her love & accepted me & my tomboyish ways. We always loved to talk about relationships & to promote feminism in a positive way & sometimes in a mischievous way. But that is what made our talks so fun. I will always remember her for her jokes, her playfulness, and her laughter.
    With fond memories & love, Corina

  5. Dear Flora
    God has taken you from us so that
    you do not have to suffer anymore
    with all the pain you went thru you
    are in peace now in Gods house where
    we all will be there to be together again.

  6. My loving Sister has gone before me. In sorrow do I cry.
    She has begun the journey, and left me by and by.
    I cry for me, Rejoice for her.
    With memories and loving friends, I take my comfort then.
    Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again Bright soul.
