Summer and Angel, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad helped out so much at Floranada over the years. Besides helping out when I had you a few years back, he made the halls a beautiful place to work and learn. The tiles stand as a tribute to your Dad's hard work and caring heart.
I'm praying for your family,
Mrs. Cary
