Florence was a blessing to everyone at First Baptist Church in Crystal Lake. She told me she joined us because she enjoyed the adult Bible class. She actively participated in worship, music, learning, and social activities and was always ready to be picked up from Eastgate by one of us on Sunday morning. Her friendly smile and presence leave me with many beautiful memories to cherish and know she is at peace with Jesus. A beautiful Lady!
So sorry Flo. We loved you and will miss you. ❤️
My sweet beautiful friend. We will miss our sunshine gal!
