To the family of Florence Larson, So sorry to hear of her passing. Accept our deepest sympathy as you mourn your loss. My mother and I met her a few times. We knew her through Kathyrn Cortney. We found Florence to be a delightful lady with a good sense of humor.

To Florence’s family,
We knew Florence since the time she was married to Dolan. We liked her very much. She was a sweet lady and she was always happy to see us when we visited. Although she is in a better place now, It is sad to think that Florence is no longer with us on Earth. We will not see any more of her beautifully handwritten letters or share moments about our lives. Florence often expressed her devotion to the Catholic Church. Perhaps she prayed enough to earn her way to Heaven. We will miss her.
With much empathy,
Agnes and John Cortney
P.S. Included is a photo of Florence with us in Chadron in 2004.

Dearest Duane and Connie,

Florence is now enjoying the peace she prayed for in her last days. My thoughts and love will be with you both during this time.
Much love,
