Farewell to our Matriarch

Carmel Pine Cone, May 18, 2018 (main news)My Aunt Louise, or Flo, aka Fanny Farkle, left the planet last month after breaking her hip and then developing an infection while in the hospital. We’re all very sad to lose her at the ripe old age of 96, but at least she kept her sense of humor until the end. One of the last things she said to the doctor was, “I’m ready to get off this bus.” R.I.P. Auntie! I’ll miss our bi-weekly phone conversations. Who will I argue with now?



  1. She sounds like an amazing person- showing us the way into our 90’s.
