Mrs. Florence was so kind to me and everyone in my family. I was always amazed at how she remembered all our birthdays (family of 7). She never forgot, and she usually left a card and a $20 bill without every saying anything. She was very thoughtful, extremely kind, and I'll also never forget how she described my baseball practice, which was me throwing a tennis ball against the wall (she always told me I should come inside from the heat before I passed out, and that the sound of the ball against the wall was very loud). She was a wonderful woman, may she rest in peace.
