|what it looked like on the day I wore it|
preserved gardenia corsage worn for Mom's memorial service (wednesday 2/15/06).
This was also the day she was cremated.
Mom's birthday is next weekend, on October 24th, so I thought this would be appropriate. Gardenia's were one of her favorite flowers. If you asked each of my sisters what her favorite flower was, we'd all give different answers. And we would all be right. She was funny like that.
