Florence and Milton were at the family reunion every year since I was a young child in the 1970's.
Milton would make the annual announcements to the family by using a amplified loudspeaker that didn't sound louder, it sounded like Milton was on the radio.
I miss both of them.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Florence will be missed by her family and friends, but she will not be forgotten by our heavenly father Jehovah (John 5:28,29). I hope this will bring comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see her again (Psalms 37:29).

Grandma (Florence) was a wonderful step grandmother. She always treated me as if she were my grandmother. She also made my siblings and I crocheted vests and crafts. I remember the first time I met her as a young teenager. I knew she made grandpa happy and their many travels added to his life. I am grateful for her christian witness and that we had Christ in common.

May 9, 2015 we became aware of Grandma (Florence) Roof's death and we were very saddened that she died. She was a bright and cheery addition to our family when she married our Grandpa, (Milton) Roof. I'll never forget when she took me shopping to buy me SEVERAL new dresses at the same time! WOW! (I lived in a poor family and to get even ONE new dress back then would have been a real treat, but Grandma Florence bought me FIVE new dresses at one time.) That was about 47 years ago, but I will never forget it.

I have been at a loss of words since finding out may 9, 2015 that our Grandma Roof had passed away. I have precious memories of living up North for a while with my Mom (faith Roof Taylor ,Grandpa & Grandma Roof. She loved life to the fullest. No matter how young or old I got she could run circles around me! When I was about 10 years old grandma asked me if I would call her grandma & That it would mean so much to her. I was the one blessed to have had her as my grandma! I will always remember all the board games we played together & countless puzzles . She would get so excited planning a day or another adventure somewhere. It was grandma's youthfulness that kept grandpa alive to see his 90's. I still have a sweater she crochet me for my first daughter. I will forever miss her.
