  1. My condolences to the family. I was a good friend of Christie Smith who was a devoted daughter of Florence and visited her often as no other daughter did. She was devoted to her mother, but it seems that she was not even mentioned in the obituary and would have been devastated to know that her own sister did not even acknowledge that her mother was pre-deceased by her daughter Christie. Christie was a devoted daughter, who was always concerned about her mother’s health and welfare. Hopefully Florence will realize when she passes into heaven that the daughter that pre-deceased her was the angel that every mother wishes she gave birth to.
