We are so deeply saddened for Flora to leave us. She was my Mom's first roommate in May, 2017, and always held a special pace in our hearts. We would often stop to share each other's progress in their rehabilitation, and enjoyed the solitude and sunshine in the garden together. Flora left a lasting impression in our hearts, and will be greatly missed.

The family of Anne T. Allain
