    Many prayers and God’a comfort for the family. I did not know Florence very well but all that spoke of her always said she loved the church and that she was a Godly woman. I have no doubt she is rejoicing with Jesus at this very moment!! May God grant all the peace and comfort knowing those who are in Christ will rejoice with Florence one day again.
