Thank You Ocean View Flowers

TAPSThanks to CalFlowers member Ocean View Flowers hundreds of members of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) were able to take a donated bouquet of larkspur with them to Arlington National Cemetery over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend.  TAPS offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one serving in our Armed Forces. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.  Thanks to CalFlowers member, Ocean View Flowers, 500 hundreds TAPS members  were not going to visited their fallen soldiers empty handed.  The family members were simply disbelieving that the bouquets were there as a gift.  Many would ask:  "well much do I owe you", as they reached for money.  We simply said:  "you already paid -- this is our small way of saying thank you."  Damn!  Not a dry eye for 20 feet...
