My name is Tia and I worked with Flora during her 'Dynasty' days as her production secretary. She gave me a silk scarf as a Christmas gift and I still have it, today. Every time I see it I think of Flora and the time I spent working with her. She is/was unforgettable.

After 3 years the loss is even harder now that we lost Billy 2 months ago. Now mom is giving Billy his lists, and the 3 of them are relieved of all their pain and suffering. I miss them so. Sara (Patricia)
