A large part of my business comes in the form of sympathy work.
Creating beautiful tributes to celebrate the life of a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend....
It's challenging. It's rewarding. It's inspiring.
Sometimes I smile as I work the blooms..... and sometimes I feel the tears on my cheek.
Each time is different. Each time I feel honored to have the family's trust placed in my hands.
Perhaps that's why I love it so much.
This morning's work was for a kind gentleman born in Italy...and so the flowers that adorned his casket were green, white, and red...a tribute to his heritage.
Rest well, Mr. Sacchetti....rest well.
