Sending my deepest sympathy to the Bibby family. Looking through your pictures I could feel the deep roots and the love of this family. I have known several members of this family for many years and I was a classmate of Tom. I also wonder in amazement at the amount of patience, time and energy that this woman had. The love of her family was all that mattered to her. Something that she has passed on to each and every one of you. Remember her with a smile and keep each other close . My thoughts are with you

Condolence from Sue (Selves) Shafer on April 16th, 2014 10:15 AM

I am deeply saddened to hear of Flo’s passing.

Although I haven’t seen her in a few years, I have so many wonderful childhood memories from time spent at Flo and Bob’s with the Bibby crew. As a child I thought Flo’s kitchen was one of the best places in the world. The kettle was always on, there was always something good to eat, there was always room for one more chair around the table and there was always laughter, joking, stories and friendship.

She was one of the sweetest, friendliest and kindest people that I have ever known.

I’ll bet she already has a batch of fudge on the stove and is making heaven a sweeter place.

Unfortunately I can’t make it down to Exeter today to help celebrate her life but am sending my condolences to you all.


Condolence from Randy & Karen Stanlake on April 16th, 2014 11:23 AM
