Florence and I shared the Center Street telephone prayer chain for many years after it was begun by Rev. Ralph Fishburn. We would check to see that the message got through and that it was correct. We came after Kathryn Turner got it took care of it for many years. It gave us a mission to bring comfort during loss. I remember meeting her mother after church when we first moved to the city, "I'm Mrs. Nugent Primrose". I never forgot. Thanks for our shared time Florence. Blessings to the family. I know how much she loved you.
