Lowell and Family,

We are so sorry to hear about Flo.  She was such a sweet lady-always bubbly and happy.  Sam just saw her a couple of weeks ago while he and Bill were checking the corn field.  She stopped and hollared at them and asked if they knew what they were doing.  That is the way she was.  

We are unable to come into viewing.  Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Sam and Janice Foos

Although I only knew Flo Fitzpatrick for a short time, it was immediately apparent that she was a person of unusual quality. She truly understood the truth of life - Serve others and enjoy what you are given. She shared love and happiness with those around her in a manner that made it impossible to not be happy in her presence. I would like to express my sincere condolences to all the family and friends and encourage them to take the many positive attributes they learned from her forward in their lives, so that her mission in life continues.

Sharon - Your mom possesses one of the purest and truest souls I have ever encountered.  No matter what mood I was in seeing your mom made my day better.  She really was an "every mom" - she was willing to take all of us under her wing.

Lowell & Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. During every encounter with Flo, especially the post office retirement party for you and my dad, I so enjoyed talking with her and getting to know her. We laughed about many stories that evening. She was so full of life.
I remember her concern about my dad when he had surgery last year. It meant a lot to know you both care so much about my parents. Compassion and caring came so easy for her.
Please know that God is with you and will help you through your grief.
Flo will be greatly missed!

I am sorry to learn of FLo's passing. What a shock to all of us at NCR who had come to know and love Flo. She was such a warm smile and self-less worker at our offices.
We are so surprised, since she had the appearance of being so healthy and energetic around all of us.
We will miss Flo and our connnection with Sharon's family here at NCR.

Uncle Lowell and Family,

I was deeply sadden to hear of Aunt Flo's passing.  I'm so sorry that I am unable to make it to the service.  

Although I probably didn't know Aunt Flo as well as many other's did, I loved her very much.  I would like to have thought she was a lot like my mom (her sister, Evelyn).  My biggest regret is not getting to spend more time with her.

My deepest sympathies to you and your families.
Love to you all,

The first time we met Flo we could not believe a person this warm and loving could exist.

The second time we met Flo, it was like we knew her our whole life.

She welcomed us into her home and made us feel like we were family. NO,,, much more then that. She made us feel loved.  

Oh my God what a sweet Lady!  We will miss her.

Kay, Mike and Harley,  you will always have your memories to comfort you through the years, and the knowledge that Flo is in the house our lord has built for her.  

We pray that God be your guide during this very sad time.

My mother Lois Belcher asked me to send her deepest condolences to Flo's family. My mother lived in Magnetic Springs for many years before moving back to West Virginia. She would always tell me about Flo and how kind she was to her. My mother would walk down to Flo's store each day to talk to her and Flo always treated my mother with kindness and respect. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. God bless you.
