    Florentine was an evangelizer of her faith from early on. She led the rosary beautifully before Masses, for so many years…and in a loud, clear voice. She was volunteering for whatever was needed and kept her wonderful, cheerful spirit. I know she will have a special place in Heaven. God grant her soul eternal rest.
