  13. Sue, Jeff, Jason, Jonathan, and Justin,
    Mrs. O was a wonderful, loving mother, mother-in-law, and very special grandmother.. She was an amazingly kind, generous, and compassionate person, who welcomed everyone into her home and life. She always showed so much warmth and love towards everyone. It was so obvious that she loved you all dearly. I will always remember fondly her laughter and great sense of humor. She loved life, her family, and friends and is now able to be at peace. I know how much you miss her, but she continues to live in your heart always. Remember the joy she brought to you and others. That is her lasting gift . She was a very special lady!

  14. Aunt Flo will always hold a special place in our hearts. I will always cherish all the fond memories we had growing up. As a child, since we didn’t live very far apart in Florida, we were very close. We were always welcome in her home and there was always an abundance of laughter. Some of my dearest memories were when Aunt Flo and Uncle Stanley would come up from Sunrise to our home for Thanksgiving dinner and she would always bring her famous fruit salad. Her contagious laughter, generosity, compassion and her love of life will be truly missed but her memories will live on with us forever.

  15. Susan, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. May God continue to strengthen you through this difficult time.

  18. My deepest sympathy goes out to the whole family.. One thing that I will always remember about Flo was how she was always feeding me, and if you know me you know I like to eat. LOL…. I wouldn’t be in her house for more than 2 minutes before she was pulling something out of the fridge for me to eat ! .. She was the best and will be extremely missed.

  19. Susan so sorry for the loss of your mother god gained a angel she will be looking over you and your family.

  20. Dear Susan, at this most difficult time, please know that all of us, who love you, are also feeling your loss, but. of course, you feel it the worse of all. Please know, that your sweet Mother is at peace and comfort and is surrounded by those who have gone before her. I will leave you with this thought – I’m not sure where it came from, but I’ve kept it around for a long time: “What if they are not stars, after all, but windows in heaven, where the ones who we have lost, can look down on us and send some peace and love and blessings, our way.” See you soon. Love, Vicki

  21. Dear Susan and Jeff – This is never an easy time, but be proud of the excellent care you were able to give her when she needed it the most. Your family continued to put her first and surrounded her with love, attention, respect. Take comfort in knowing she is now in the arms of her heavenly father, and her spirit and compassion live on within you. May your precious memories gradually ease the pain of your loss.

  22. Susie, Carol and Tommy,
