  1. Aunt Florrie’ was always a favorite
    visitor when we were kids living in
    St. Albans,NY. It was always a fun time
    when she was there. Then when we were older, the fun continued when we visited her and Roy in Rochester and Greece. She was surely loved by the
    ‘Smith kids’ and will remain in our hearts
    always. With much love and deepest sympathy to our Hamlin cousins and
    their families.
