My Thoughts are with your family and friends. When I heard of Florence's passing, all the wonderful memories I had of working with her at Kinney's came to mind. When I started she was my Thursday night buddy and we always entertained ourselves in the front of the store. One particular memory is when she called me a "Hot Dog", I remember trying to quickly figure out if that was a good thing.Well it was and she kind of made it my nickname for further conversations. Even after Florence worked at Kinney's she always made me smile when she called or was in the store, always having something to say (in Florence's way). Which like my mom said, always reminded me of my great-grandmother Ruby. She will be missed by so many. Alisha Hite

Norm - My heart aches for you. I'm so sorry for your loss. I still remember the times years ago when I was a babysitter of Norm and Brian for you and Florence. That was long ago. In more recent years I'll always be so grateful for all of the things you did for my mom. Florence was a great lady who will truly be missed. Hold on to your memories and let them guide you through this difficult time.
