  1. A couple of weeks ago, my mom had the first of a series of strokes and since that time she has not wanted to talk very much. Yesterday I told her of Florence’s passing and we went on about what good neighbors and good parents they both had been back on Pond Road….and the fences, the garden tomatoes and the neighborhood dogs. We’re sorry for your loss; she was a great neighbor and friend.

  2. I am so saddened to hear of your loss. She was one of my mothers best friends. I always loved visiting with Florence and Nate when I was very young. My heartfelt condolensces to the family.

  3. I have such fond memories of growing up next door to the Jones family. We had a great little neighborhood, which is much changed now. I was sorry to hear of Florence’s passing. My brother, Jay, sent the news along to me. I join Florence’s family in grieving her loss.

  4. My condolences to the Jones’ family. Working as an attendant at Hamden Congregate I became to know Florence as a kind and caring person. She will be missed by all at Congregate I am sure.
