  15. I would like to share a memory of what kind of person Aunt Florence was. She meet my daughter Ashlea for the first time at the 2002 reuion.

About 3 weeks after we returned home Ashlea recieved her first installment of National Geographic Kids. Aunt Florence did this for Ashlea after only one conversation with her.

  28. I remember talking to Aunt Florence and I know that her spirit will go to heaven. I know that she is looking down on us now and will guide us here on Earth. When I found that Florence had passed I said a prayer for her and her loved ones. Though we may be far away I always think of our family – both near and far. My immediate family is now Jim & his wife Debbie Dickson (formerly Mallari) – no children yet. Also my daughter Debbie and her husband Alex Perez. Debbie has kept her maiden name and they have several children. David, Joseph, Louis, Patricio, and Samuel. Sammy is the youngest. My health is fine, but next month I am getting a physical just to be sure. All of our thoughts are with you and we wish you the best in this sad time. Love Always, The Dicksons from San Diego.
