I first met Sister Joseph David, or "Flo" as she later had us call her, in 8th grade at OLV. She was a great teacher, and advocate for students. So many of us stayed friends with her, and when she returned to OLV as DRE were glad to reconnect. Through all the eras of our lives she was a supportive presence, and had the greatest sense of humor. I'm sure she is smiling down on all of us.

As a graduate of Our Lady of Victory School, Floral Park, class of 1967, I send my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of Sister Florence. We will always have fond memories of her as our 8th grade teacher as well as attending and adding her wit and wisdom to our 30th and 40th reunions. God rest her soul.
