“Please don’t bring me any flowers today for they would just die and wither away. I’ve had my life’s bouquet. My three 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
