Default In Deepest Sympathy

a few moments ago i received a pm from one of our regular posters. she was writing to inform me that one of our two chat hosts, flora had passed away yesterday.

i have met flora and her husband and know them both to be wonderful, kind, decent people. i hope that all of you will just take a moment to pause and offer any prayer your religion prefers for those who leave us in mourning.

she will truly be missed.

Your words are kind Sherry.

How sad.

I too have met Flora and hubby.........last yr @ Amsterdam Manor Happy Hour.
Flora was a kind and very friendly person.

Our condolences to the family including the bulletin board and chat family.

May Flora's soul rest in peace with the Lord.

Ohh, no! It's always a shock, isn't it? Wow. I'm just struck by this.

My deepest sympathies to her family. Flora was always dedicated to making the chat room known for those who had questions about Aruba. She worked to make it a fun place. I'm sure wherever she is, she's doing more of the same.

We were deeply saddened and shocked when we received the news.
Flora and Pat had just been to Aruba a few weeks ago and had visited with us. She was a very energetic and enthusiastic lady and a good friend. She had just celebrated her birthday in Aruba (she usually visits in November).

She was a true Aruba lover and had many friends on the island (us included). During the 5 years we knew her and Pat they always remembered the kids and the kids now have a beanie collection to show for it We were lucky to have her be part of our lives.

Our sympathy goes out to Pat and her family. She will be deeply missed.

Daphne, Mark, Michael & Cristina
