  2. Interesting in that the obituary describes the flowers as well as the givers. I do not think I have read one like that.

  3. Greetings and welcome to Geneabloggers.com! I agree with TCasteel, I don't recall ever reading an obituary where the flowers and those who gave them mentioned like the one you've shared. This is interesting indeed; again, welcome!
