  2. We love you Flo. We had such great times with you the memories are so wonderful we will remember them forever and ever Love Tim and Angie Hillock

  3. Having Flo as an Aunt was delightful! We lived in the same house on Park Street in East Point GA, during my early childhood and we had a blast! She was 13 years older than I and I learned so much from her in every aspect of life. Flo has always had a delightful spirit about her and we got to be together a lot, as I grew up and even as she was living her life and I was having my own family, who also know her wonderful, loving spirit. I always felt blessed to have her as my aunt and my friend. Rest in Peace Aunt Flo. Love always, Rhonda

  7. CandleImageI haven’t been able to come to words yet as I am coming to bear the news of my sweet Great Aunt Flo’s passing this week. I waited until today to tell Dani in person after her tests and graduation on Friday. We were already to be there this coming week in Georgia and were on our way to visit her. We lit a prayer candle for her last Sunday at church for her peace and painfree recovery, hoping the last time we were there on borrowed time, wasn’t the last time we would see her face & feel her hugs. I have so many words to say about how incredible my Great Aunt Flo Roumillat was in her life and for her to be apart of our lives. My cousin Jennifer was able to state first person quote of her achievements in her career, school and retirement from the CDC. But personally, this hit me very hard because I just wish there was more time and more visits. She was an inspiration and joy to be around. She was always there for us hanging out at my grandparents lake house during my childhood, sharing our family history, cooking family recipes, teaching lifelong survival skills, but above all always showed kindness. She had strong virtues and loved Jesus, and was very good at sharing her advice. Whenever I was around her, I knew she loved me, and I could feel it deeply and truly. She was one of my grandaddy’s, awesome sisters. Those three are exceptional human beings and so loving. That love means so much and I will carry that feeling for the rest of my life. It’s that feeling of being around YOUR people and never questioning the reciprocation of that love and care. I will forever miss her & forever love her. I would share special times with her with my cousins as kids and making more memories into my adult years, with priceless trips with my own kids. I am thankful she is now with my grandparents getting a bear 🐻 hug from my granddaddy, and chatting with my aunts and uncles who have already crossed over – free of pain, at final peace, the ultimate/true recovery – dancing in Heaven with waves of goodness upon her now. I will make a pact to share her love of fishing and cooking by making sure all our younger cousins get together and “Fish on” and make good eats in your loving spirit. Rest In Peace Great Aunt Luna Floretta ❤️❤️❤️
