I would like to extend my condolences to Tomas and family. I knew Flo since she and Tomas moved to Questa. I became close to her, Tomas and at that time little Tomas. We had so many good times together. She always had the best personality and I loved her smile. May you rest in peace my friend. Tomas and kids may you find peace in her memories and know that she truly loved each and everyone of you.
