    Rest in peace Florence. We will miss you. The memory of you as a friend will stay with us. We spent good times together, shared lots of laughs and especially remember prospecting for gold and having ice cream at OK Falls. But it’s the shared love of our grandchildren, Zachery and Clayton, for which you will be missed most. You were a wonderful grandmother! Our heartfelt condolences go out to you Peter.
    Sincerely Eileen and Terry Parr

    So sorry for your loss. We have shared so many treasured memories firstly as neighbours on Chalfont and then as travel buddies for many years. Loved Flo’s sense of humour and she and John made for quite a pair when it came to their battle of whits. We will hold them in our hearts Peter !!! You are such a good man Peter and always took good care of your family. Florence loved you so very much and lucky you had one another for so many memorable years. Love to all, Judy Mark

    Peter, Chris, Mary and boys;
    Having neighbour’s like Peter and Florence is truly a gift. A smile from Florence was like a ray of sunshine even on a cold rainy day. She will be sadly missed by all, but never forgotten.
    May your journey Florence be one of peace and tranquility.
