To the Cloud family
First let me say how sorry I am for the passing of Florence and, because I am out of town, I cannot attend her funeral. My thoughts will be with all of you. Boy, that sure went fast after being placed in hospice.
Florence and I were friends forever. I will always remember working together at the Village, collecting taxes, Christmas get -togethers and the farm. She was always so friendly and helpful and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
God bless and keep your family thru this difficult time. Geraldine Kowalski
