Condolence & Memory Journal

Condolences to the Dublin family. Ms. Flossie was a neighbor for many years on Belmont section of Smithfield, NC. She was always a kind and friendly person. I will continue to lift each of you up in my prayers. I will miss seeing her at First Baptist Church when I visit.

My heart is filled with the most loving memories of Aunt Flossie. She always spent time talking with me and my brother ( Jerome ) with a smile and open arms of love. I will cherish the loved that she shared freely with me and Jerome during our years of growing up in Smithfield. She was truly filled with the love of God. With that being said, I take comfort in knowing that one day I will see her again.

Aunt Flossie was the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman and I was blessed to have her in my life as my Great Aunt. You were a blessing to me and our family! You will be missed but I know Uncle Coot will be happy to see you again. Rest well.

She was our aunt by marriage but treated us like we were related by blood. We could not ask for a better aunt. We will miss those warm greetings and a wonderful hugs during our visit to her home. God allowed her to live for over 102 spreading joy to all that she met. On last week God called her name and she peacefully slipped away to her heavenly home.
