Condolence & Memory Journal

How does one even start to express, how it feels to be writing about Flossy, having Gone Home to Heaven!
I can still picture her in the day room, watching the rest of her stories, after I came on duty. Thank Goodness for the memories, that are so precious and sweet!
I remember so many, work related and personal experiences, that will keep me smiling throughout eternity!
Thank you so much for that, Flossy; I love you forever or longer!

Carole, your Mom had a sweet calming spirit I remember so well. You and I grew up going to the Warburton Fellowship activities then on to Hartford High. When I became Director of the Northend Senior Center I was reaquainted with your Mom and found her spirit had never changed. Take comfort in all your good memories. I know her spirit remains with you. Karen Bailey
