They provided leadership in so many ways. They were a loving couple. I will especially remember Flo for her infectious laugh and cheerful personality, as well as her special desserts like lemon squares and ‘whip and chip.’ I enjoyed visiting her occasionally in Arden. I was impressed that she continued to follow the happenings at Calvary even after so many years. Love to all of you. Gloria Kilpatrick
