I wanted to give my condolences to all of Aunt Florene's kids (my cousins): Glenna, George, Grace, Edna, Frank, Shirlee & stepdaughter Amy. I would also like to extend it to her other family members & friends. She was a wonderful lady & will be greatly missed. I love you Aunt Florene! May you RIP! Until we meet again.
I think maybe the Ross family could use a little break! Anyways, I just wanted to say thank-you for always making me feel welcome in your home. I'm sure I pushed a few buttons along the way, but you were always patient, kind and understanding. I came close to wearing out my welcome, but you always opened your door with a smile and I look back and appreciate that so much!! You managed to raise some incredible children who turned out to be amazing adults, I know you were always very proud of every accomplishment. One thing is for sure .. you're in good company with your son and daughter .. give them both a high five from Al : ) Love you .. bye for now
