Lydia,and family,I met Flora a few years ago while we were shopping in the drugstore. It was really nice to talk with her. We had attended the same school at one time,and she had planned to come to our next school reunion. She was such a sweet lady, and I'm truly sorry for your loss. May God bless you with peace and comfort is my prayer. Katie
