I’m was so sorry to hear about Aunt Flo. I always looked forward to visiting her when I came to St. Marys. We always had such nice conversations. I remember a conversation about the white afghan in her TV room. I told her I had one just like it in cream and she just laughed because they were made by the same person, my grandmother. I never knew she made them for the hospital to auction off and Aunt Flo told me she made those is white and family members got cream. She when to school with my Uncle Joe and it was so much fun to sit and listen to her. Take care and let me know if you need anything.
