My mother, Jo Cash, and Ms. Floy became the closest of friends late in their lives. I am so very thankful for the friendship that they had. My mother loved Ms. Floy and was at her happiest in her living situation hanging out with her pal everyday. We are so blessed to have the beautiful parents that we have and it’s an honor to walk their journey with them.
Bob and Kaye. I was sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I will be unable to attend the services but want you both to know that you are all in my prayers and heart. Ms Floy is in a better place but your heart will still hurt
Bob, what an amazing life your mom lived! You and Karen are in my prayers.
