Florence embraced all of the Mote family as her own. She sewed Halloween costumes for my daughter, Glenalyn. She sent cards for all the special occasions plus the one for  "Just because" We loved her very much. Beautiful collection of photos.

Thank you, Florence for being such a wonderful Mother-in-Law and Grandmother.
