Flower Handout and Placement
"It was a very moving and humbling experience and something that I hadn’t expected. Perhaps magnified as I originally was so excited to be a part of the program to honor my Pop, stepfather, who was a WWII and Korean War, Marine Corps veteran, who passed away the Saturday prior and who’s service we won’t have for three more weeks. Each rose I placed, I think I also placed for him."
"As I went to visit my daughter's and husband's gravesite on Memorial Day, I was overcome with the sight of the rose on their headstone in Section 12. Thank you for your thoughtfulness."
"Flowers were an important medium for this special occasion where words are simply inadequate to convey the range of emotions that flow when meeting family members who have lost a loved one to military service. Handing them a fistful of flowers was special for them and for me."
"For me personally it was a very moving day, my husband is there, and was beautiful to see all our veterans honored by so many caring people. One of the most touching stories I heard was from one of the volunteers, she said as she placed a rose on the marker and read the name, service history, age, that person became real to her, not just a head stone of an unknown soldier. Thanks again for everything."
"On Monday, I traveled from Richmond, VA to Arlington National Cemetery with my oldest daughter and her family to honor my mother, step-father and father who are buried there. We had forgotten flowers and just as we approached the Columbarium, we passed your table and were graciously given roses for their graves. Thank you so much for your service of lovely flowers. It is always hard to realize that they are gone but comforting to know they are in such glorious company and really honored tor their sacrifices."
