Please accept our sincere sympathy during your time of loss. Miles Walker Lewis used to refer to Ms. FloRene as a very fine "southern woman". As the years passed and I had to opportunity to get to know Ms. FloRene, I realized that Miles was right! She will be missed.

Dear Bobby and Faith & sons, Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We lost our grandmother last year and although she was 98 years old, that did not make it easier to give her up. God be with you!
