Give Loved Ones Flowers

Give your loved ones Flowers while they can smell and see them. No one knows the day or hour when it will be our last. Tell your loved ones now while they’re here with us. Giving flowers may be as simple as telling them you love them, showing them you appreciate them, or just being there to support them. This is just what I did and continue to do with my loved ones.

I wrote the book titled: These Are Your Flowers. In this book I gave my mother, grandmother, dad, and mother-figures their flowers. This was a simple but necessary gesture. The book is available on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/~/e/B00TLXK5L6 in paperback or kindle.
