My family and I lived next door to Florence and James Hogan starting in Nov. 1968. Florence was very friendly and kind to our family. She sometimes took my sister and I on outings to go swimming at a friend’s house on Rt. 5 in Wallingford. My siblings and I often raked the oak leaves from their large yard and she paid us well for helping her with that chore. Florence was a good friend to my mother. I will remember her fondly.
