I was a trainee florist when I was 17. The saddest one I had was a phone order from a gentleman who wanted a bouquet of flowers with the note “Sorry I ruined your life” to his ex lover. (sacrilicious_sk)

I’ll Never Let Go

A man paid for flowers to be left at his wife’s graveside once a month. Always wrote “I love and miss you” on it. Not the saddest thing to write, but just the idea of it. He always called to make sure we didn’t forget, too.

Also, having to do the flower arrangements for a friend I was just with the night before. Imagine finding out they died because someone was ordering flowers for their parents. (tashibum)

A Mysterious Message

Not a florist, but I once had flowers delivered to my office and the card said, “I know I will never see you again but I wanted to thank you for changing my life”.

I have no idea who they were from. (Hurray_For_Candy)
