“Please don’t bring me any flowers today for they would just die and wither away. I’ve had my life’s bouquet. My 3 children are my roses in bloom they have brought me all the joy to consume. I have grandchildren, great grandchildren they are all great to me. You see I have had my roses in bloom. If you have anything that you want to give. Give it to a child or someone in need and I will thank you indeed.” By Lucy Rich
