It was with great pleasure that I cared for Florence on the midnight shift at Concordia. Florence and I became very close and I'm deeply saddened by her passing from this life. Florence and I often joked between us that I was her husband and she had put me in her will! Florence came to be my very favorite resident and I was in SAMs club in butler when I got the news, I'm sure shoppers were wondering why I was pushing a cart and crying! It brought me great joy many times to see her face just light up when I would bring her tacos from Taco Bell! You have my deepest sympathy and I will deeply miss my "wife" and my good friend.
