Just a brief note to say how sorry I am about your loss and your families. Will always remember helping plan your wedding together when she picked Rachael to be flower girl. She was one of the sweetest people I've ever know and will be greatly missed by all. Wishing all of you only the best. Always Donna (Fayo) Halpin

Flossie and I were on the PTO Board at Rombout Middle School when our daughters were in school there. She was a wonderful lady who I KNOW will be missed by all who ever met her!

My niece Flossie was a fun loving beautiful lady. I remember the day she was born and how happy her parents were. I am so glad we were able to stay in touch even though we were far apart geographically. My prayers for Michael, Danny and family, and Courtney. You were her world. I know she loved all of you deeply. God has gained a Angel.
