From the moment I stepped off that plane 25 years ago and met you for the first time, I knew we were going to be more than just sister-in-laws. That day you welcomed me into the"Keeling" family with open arms, thank you for that! You took the short notice we gave that Don & I were getting married and made our day so very special-the flowers, the reception, the cake and the dinner was so wonderful (we can't forget the men's restroom that night or Dale's video camera expertise...lol). You were more like a sister and one of my best friends.

I am sure going to miss our late night calls and texts; you never questioned the crazy things I was doing while we talked (raking the leaves at 11:00 pm, Christmas decorating almost as late, painting until all hours...lol). I could always count on you to be up at those hours as well. We sure had some interesting talks, especially the "Keeling" brother discussions. Maybe we could still have them, do you have a mailing address?

Speaking of the "Keeling" brothers, how am I going to survive the Florida road trips? It always took the both of us to handle them on the 2200 mile drive down and back. What about the diaries you kept of each trip? I am not sure I can keep them as great as you did. How many times did I try and persuade you to see about getting them published into a book? They are far more entertaining than Bridget Jones Diaries! Laura and Kim have loaned them to me, I am either going to scan or type them-who knows maybe I can see about getting them published for you.

Remember all of our shopping trips? "Flo, stay away from the purses". You were always telling me to keep you away from the purses and I was always asking you if you could handle just "one" more store. And we can't forget the shopping trips with Matthew-I was forever separating you two!

Speaking of Matthew,thank you for being his "grandma". He thought the world of you, even though he liked to aggravate you with the help of Cole (the Cubs/Cards rivalry, the condo bathroom, the Xmas "pickle"-the list goes on and on).

Just as Matt's list goes on and on I too could go on and on about all of the times you and I have shared along with our families, the holidays and vacations, but I don't think there is enough space in this Guest Book to hold it all.

We are all very fortunate to have had you in our lives,to have loved you and to be loved by you in return. Flo Jean you will be greatly missed!

Flo Keeling I can't believe you are actually gone. If I would have known the last time I saw you would have been the last, I would have told you so many things. You were one of the greatest people I have ever known and always cared so much for me. I am gonna miss arguing with you about cubs and cards, all the times I would intentionally annoy you to get you going, and all the times we had together. I am gonna miss you so much and our family Florida trips won't be the same without you. I love you and rest in peace.

My heart broke when I heard about Flo. I am so happy I got to spend Mother's Day with her and the rest of the family. Flo was an incredible woman who I greatly admired. Thank you for sharing your Mom with me Laura. Flo's kind words and motherly talks will never be forgotten. Sending prayers and hugs to you - Dale Laura & Kim. Heaven is in for some fun.
