“Why did I even bother stating “No flowers” in the obituary!”
“Flowers are pretty. And Red Ginger and Birds of Paradise were Nana’s favorites. I think it’s nice of people to remember her this way. What’s your issue with flowers!”
“Well first of all, they’re a waste of money. We were very clear. We said, “in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Sunset Hospice. Why can’t people respect our wishes?!”
“I’m sorry. Why are you so upset?”
“Cut flowers die. I can’t bear to watch them fade, like Nana did. Take them somewhere…please!”
“So sorry. I get it.”
