Flowers meant to ease grief only causing more heartache
Dear Abby: My father-in-law died two weeks ago. The services were beautiful. Many people sent flowers, but one arrangement – a bouquet of white flowers – arrived anonymously. I didn't think much about it, just that someone wanted to express sympathy. Now my mother-in-law has become frantic with concern about the flowers. She sobs over not knowing who sent them and – we think – suspects they came from an old or not-so-old flame.
