Shame on person who stole flowersThis is to the thief or thieves who had the audacity to take a beautiful memorial plant my Mom placed at my father’s grave site on Saturday, May 23. We visited the site on Memorial Day, only to have my mother join us and find out that she had placed a beautiful plant in his memory, and someone had the gall to take it.
No, it did not blow away. It was a big, heavy pot filled with beautiful geraniums that she put together herself in a holder that fit over the top of the headstone.
What a disgrace you have shown to us, his family, and to the deceased. And on Memorial Day weekend, no less. I hope every time you look at that plant you remember exactly how it was that you came to acquire it. I can’t image you would find any enjoyment in that plant, but then again maybe you will since you stole it. Shame on you for hurting our family in this way.
