I have known Flora since we were little children at Green Hill Elementary School. I have seen her through the years from time to time. She has always been such a friendly person and such a kind person. For the last several years I have seen her at McDonald's in Spindale. She took such good care of her brother, Henry, and took him to McDonald's where I saw her there. She truly loved her family. She will be dearly missed. I am so grateful that Flora has been my friend for so very, very many years.

My concern and my sympathy are with her surviving family. May the fact that so many of us loved Flora serve as a comfort to you.

David and Family, I am saddened to learn of your mothers passing. I have fond memories of her from church and the community building.
In your time of grief, hold onto the promise that the Lord is always with you.
