Flowers from an angel

For many of us who work at, one of the best things about the job is hearing about how we help people. Emails and Facebook posts of thanks from our customers are often shared around the office, and a story of how a Guest Book helped someone work through their grief can really remind us why we do what we do.

We recently received one of the most lovely thank-yous we’ve seen.

This gorgeous bouquet came from Richard, whose wife Joan recently died. After our customer service team assisted him, he sent the flowers along with a note addressed to “Carolyn, Melanie, Christine, Tracie, and all the angels at,” which read:

Thank you to all the angels that helped hold me up through Joan’s departure.

The flowers have spent several days brightening up our office, and they remind us how important our jobs are. And just as the Guest Book was a comfort to Richard, his kind gesture was a comfort to us. Richard, you’re an angel too.

About Linnea

I joined in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
