One Last Expression of Love
As florists, we get to be a small part of many of life’s most memorable moments – births, weddings, celebrations, anniversaries, graduations and so many more special occasions… yet it’s often the expressions of love and remembrance during times of loss that touch us most.
Last week, our shop created a flower arrangement for one of the most memorable requests we’ve ever designed.
A customer called asking us to make something really special, really beautiful… and that’s a request we hear daily. It was the circumstance of the order that made it so incredibly memorable.
Her uncle knew he was in his last days of life. Before he died, he requested his family arrange for his beloved wife to receive a large bouquet … the day after he passed from this earth…and that a special letter he’d written her be delivered with the flowers. He wanted to make sure she received one last love note from him.
What a beautiful way to express his love... and their unforgettable life together.
