  1. I am so sorry for your loss of your Mother
    She was a delightful woman to have grown up with
    She will always have a special place in my heart

  2. Condolences to all of Florence’s family. I will certainly miss her. I have known her for many years and considered
    Her friendship very special.

  3. Florence was synonymous with Wildwood Presbyterian Church. She was a mentor to me when I was Clerk many years ago. She was always available whenever a question needed to be answered. RIP sweet little Florence. You will definitely be missed.

  4. Throughout the years, wherever Florence lived, we visited, laughed and enjoyed each others company. She was a wonderful friend. There is a definite void in my life without her.

  5. Florence was one of the first to welcome us to Wildwood Presbyterian Church back in 1991. We were young, with three small children, and adjusting to a new home, community, and church. She came to our home with a plate of brownies. We all came to love her through the years, and will miss her wonderful spirit, wisdom, grace, kindness, humor, and determination. We will always hold Florence in our hearts.

  6. My world is a sadder place knowing that Flo is no longer here. I met Flo when she and Louis visited our family on their honeymoon, and was blessed with their friendship for the rest of their lives. I am very grateful. RIP

  7. My Condolences Lincoln, Lance and Family!
    Prayers for you all!
    God Bless You All!
    RIP Mrs. Knight!
