So sorry to hear about Ms. Flora. I have many fond memories of playing with the neighborhood gang down on Indian Trail and going in to watch her cut hair! She would always run us out but I enjoyed sneaking in to check out what was going on! She will be missed.

Although you don’t know me, my mom Helen Boone Norwood and your mom were first cousins. Flora would come to my mom and dad’s house for “get togethers” as well as at Hanks Chapel Church in Pittsboro for Boone reunions. My mom died June 5th of this year. I don’t think your mom knew that Helen had passed away but I’m sure she was glad to see her in heaven.
Take Care
