Thankful for the Memories

Losing someone is one of the hardest things about life. All you want is one more hug, one more conversation and one more time to say I love you. No one can give you what you want most, but they can help you keep that person’s memory alive. Your love for them doesn’t fade and the loss is always there, but you can keep them alive in your heart and in the hearts of others. They were always there for you, and you will always be there for them.

Let our florists at Distinctive Floral Design in Slidell, LA, help you keep the memory of your loved one or the loved one of someone you know alive. The 1-800-Flowers® Sympathy Standing Spray In Fall Colors is a stunningly beautiful and bright sympathy flower arrangement. Standing sprays are beautiful and are a great way to add color to a service, but a simple and bold flower arrangement can be sent to a home as a reminder of a life lived beyond the service. Every time they see it, they will be reminded of the loved one whose life they cherish.

You never know how truly thankful you are for memories until memories are all you have. All you want to do is relive the hour-long conversations on the porch or the crazy dinner stories. Every time you see a chess set, you think of the times you played together. You wish you could take back the times you said you were too tired to play because you would do anything to play another game with them. Let our sympathy flowers and sympathy gifts help remind you of the good times and show you why you are so thankful for the memories. No one can take the memories away from you because they reside deep in your heart.

The holidays prove to be some of the hardest times after a loss. What was once a normal holiday tradition turns into an empty chair at the table. Some say time heals all wounds, but who is to say that time will fill the space that is missing at the table. It is important to take on a new perspective, focus on the time you had and be thankful for the memories you’ve gained. Even though they are no longer there in person, their memories live on in your heart, in your home and in the empty chair at the table.

Learning to live without them is undeniably an everyday battle but keeping their memory alive is an everyday mission. Our florists at Distinctive Floral Design in Slidell, LA, are here to help you show that you are thankful for the memories. Our sympathy flowers and gifts are a beautiful way to show your condolences and help keep the memory of the people we love alive. It is important to be thankful and cherish the memories we do have.
