Aunt Flon was the most beautiful person I have ever known. She and Uncle Eddie helped raise me and my brother Steve after our mom, her sister Virginia, passed away in 1955. Flon had the innocence of a child, the wisdom of a sage, and the compassion of a saint. She was always loving, kind, and understanding, even under difficult circumstances. Flon made the world a better place and now has returned to the arms of her beloved Eddie.
