Flowers of Comfort Makes a Difference
Dear Flower Fairies,
When I provide your loving bouquets, caregivers, family members & patients eyes shine with tears of unexpected joy & delight.
Thank you for everything that you do. Our patients and their families love the arrangements you make. Last week one of our families used the flower arrangement for the centerpiece for an early thanksgiving celebration. The patient passed away the next day and the family noted that the flowers added something special to the dinner and made it feel like true thanksgiving celebration with all the fall colors.

Dear Flowers of Comfort people,
My beloved Mom died, in hospice care, last November, 13 days after being diagnosed with an aggressive, stage 4 metastatic cancer. A week before, she had been a happy, seemingly healthy, independent woman, looking forward to her 93rd birthday that month. It all happened so very fast. We were truly in shock.
Getting her a safe, loving place to stay that we could visit daily, and setting it up for her, happened in a whirlwind of decisions we felt hardly prepared to make. But I remember, her first day there, entering the room in the little care home and seeing that, along with all of Mom's things that we had set up to make her feel at home, was a simply beautiful bouquet of old fashioned pink roses. We didn't know who had sent it. It was you.
I do not know if Mom was ever able to really acknowledge this bouquet. But it made my sister and me feel so comforted. I can't quite say why, but it's beauty and the kindness of the strangers behind it, touched my heart deeply. I made it one of my activities to trim the stems and change the water daily to keep it fresh.
Anyway, all this is a long way, months later, on finding your card tucked in my pocket, to say thank you. You are angels and the work you do is important. I will always miss my Mom. I will always treasure the last 13 days I spent by her side, with your little flowers at my elbow, a sign of hope, a sign of humanity, a sign of the frailty and beauty of life.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,
All the ladies were so thrilled and grateful for the flowers. One 96 year old lady came and told me her first job at age 16 was doing flower arrangements. Receiving them today brought back special memories.
