Dear Flack Family,
My brother and I were two of the many children fortunate to go to day care with Mrs. Flack in the early 1980's. I have so many fond memories of the time spent in there: the sandbox, the swing set, and riding hot wheels in the back yard, countless hours of coloring. My love of graham crackers and dahlias (thanks to Mr. Flack!) has stayed with me all these years. My condolences to her family through this time. She was a gift. --Meredith Towne DeVito
Gwen and I recall with warmth and memories Ken's service as an usher and Lorena's service also to the Lord in the Aurora Nazarene family. Their reward will be
great in God's eyes. --Samuel and Gwen Bess
You are pure love and sweetness. Thanks for your example to this Flack family, Aunt Lorena. --Verl, Judy and Family
My brother Jon and I both went to school with her kids (Gordon and Susan) so our mothers were always at PTA meetings, teacher conferences, together. Jon and I were both scared of "Momma Flack" but her faith was well known. Our prayers are with you as we miss her, but at the same time are celebrating her homecoming. --Dave Brengan
The Ross family grew up around the corner from the Flacks. The memories that stand out the most are the laughter, picnics and playing in the back yard under the large willow tree. Lorena had a wonderful kind soul and shared it with so many of us. Mrs. Flack you will be sorely missed. - Kim Ross
Looking forward to the celebration of her life today. Praying for all of you!! --Tim and Claudia Miller
To the Flack Family We are sorry to hear about the passing of Lorena. We understand that this is indeed a difficult time for the family. Please take comfort in God promise that our love ones will live again. ( Acts 24:15) Our Creator is the source of all life. The restoring of life back to those who have died is not something that He cannot do. Please remember, that God has given us His promise. God does not lie. ( Titus 1:2)-Albert Caldwell Jr
I am saddened by your loss. Lorena was a favorite of mine at Remington Place when I worked there.
