  8. Dear Jackie and family,

    My heart breaks for all of you during this difficult time. Your mom was certainly devoted to her family. May you all find comfort that she is at peace.

  9. My sincere condolences on the passing of your wife and mother and grandmother. Flo and I worked together briefly at SNET in 1999-2000. She was always so kind, so professional, soft spoken and quick with a smile. When I got married in 2000 she gave my husband and I the most beautiful wine decanter. At the time, I shared with her that I would have bought the exact same thing had I seen it first – that’s how much I loved it! I have since had it displayed in our kitchen every single day. I think of her every holiday when I fill it with wine and place it on our dinner table…..my family has heard Flo’s name over and over again throughout the years, as I often retell them where it came from. She was a wonderful person – please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  10. Oh, Liz, your mother must have been wonderful, because – look at you – an educator way beyond typical…a beautiful human being inside and out.
    You spend your days giving and loving. What a great comfort..in time..your husband and children will be.

  11. To my friend Flo and family. I always thought Flo was a gift from God. I worked with Flo for many years at AT&T, God bless you all.
