"I got distracted and forgot to order flowers for my uncle’s funeral. Friday night before the 9:30 am Saturday service, I called my regular florist, but they were unable to get my flowers there in time. So I called your company from the link at my uncle's funeral home. Even with such late notice, a kind agent named Daniela got on the phone with the local florist to confirm she could do it, and YES!…there was my beautiful arrangement, just like the picture, at 9:15 am Saturday morning! I am SO impressed, and you're now my regular florist.
