Flowers were delivered to our mother right after the show ended...the Guiding Light. the florist was warned not to go before 2:00 p.m. or she wouldn't answer the door.
She said there were no tears until the flowers came. She hoped everyones life ends happily, yes mom, if only we could WRITE OUR OWN STORIES to the end! Now that would have been a fun thing to write on the card wouldn't it?
And maybe we do write our own stories more than we think we do...think about it.
A bouquet of 5 white carnations representing her 5 pure children ( ha ha) and one red rose representing her red personality husband, anyway that's what my sister told her.
