    Don and family,

    Aunt Florence was so welcoming and friendly when I joined the family. She was a hard worker and always had a smile when tackling any job — from wallpapering to plucking chicken feathers! Wayne and I are remembering you during this time of loss.

    My Aunt Florence was a wonderful person, who along with Don, was always interested in what I had to update them with, were always there in the hard times, and always made me feel special. She was there to welcome me to the family when I became an Oliver.

    Sending hugs and love to Uncle Don, Deb and Diane.
