Florence will be missed by many people and especially by her special close friends from her school days in Borger, Texas. Florence was such a loving and good person and It was always wonderful fun to spend time with her. Now she is with God in a much better place. I love you Flo and I will miss you so much!

Florence and I have been friends since First Grade in Borger Texas. After kids got grown we reunited with another First Grade friend, Lila Widener also from Borger and just passed away less than 8 weeks ago. We three made a pact to have a reunion at least once a year, which we did. We made yearly week-long trips to Branson where Florence was our "tour guide", and our friendships became even stronger. We were like sisters. Florence was one of the sweetest persons I ever knew. She had a tremendous sense of humor and I swear, she became my own personal "Giggle Box!" She was beautiful inside and out. She was popular, she loved the Lord, was active in church and many other activities. She loved her family and always spoke of them with pride. She was always "there" on the phone when I needed a "boost." You will always be in my heart. Goodbye, my dearest friend 'til we meet again. Lynn Donahoo Coffin.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Flo was a good friend through sorority and TOPS. We shared many laughs and good times together and I was lucky enough to take care of Baby or Andre' when she out of town. I will miss you but we will see each other again someday.
