    Many fond memories of the four junior years at Gravel Rood school were she was my teacher. She was larger than life and left her imprint in the memories of many.

    I will always remember the many visits and good conversations with Aunt Florence in Florida over the years while Larry and I wintered in Florida. She always had lots of stories to share about her teaching days, enjoyed listening to her play the organ and showing pictures of extended family she was able to connect with in Ireland.
