  1. To all of Florence’s Family: We wanted you know what a wonderful neighbor Florence was and she will truly be missed. I can say for myself that I will miss stopping by to talk with her as she spoke about her wonderful children and grandchildren. She always made me laugh and her dry sense of humor was something to cherish. We feel honored to have met her and know we will always have a story or two about her as we grow older. With deepest sympathy, Erin, David, Tessa & Ben Rowell

  2. We were sorry to read of Florence’s passing. We know you will miss her as will her friends and .family. at Bethesda. She always went out of her way to welcome us when we returned to Bethesda. May the Lord bless her memory among you.
