I am so sorry to hear about Flo. My mom (Jessie Schmidt), Flo and Mabel were good friends. Flo was such a a kind person- I got to visit her this summer on my own (my mom passed away last year)- it was great to see her. The one thing I will always remember about her was that when my mom was living with dementia and her circle of friends was getting smaller - Flo would always call my mom on Friday nights and chat and remind her about the Gaither Gospel Hour television show. Rest In Peace Flo❤️ My heartfelt condolences to Flo's family and friends.
