We had so many flowers in the days after my Pop passed, it was actually depressing. Everyone is there in the weeks following the passing, but then they get back to their regular lives, as they should.

A month later a dear friend sent me flowers, not a funeral-ish flower arrangement, but a happy arrangement with a note simply saying, “Thinking of you!” It was perfect. I was still a mess and this gesture meant so much.
