Florist Information



  • Patricia Guilbeault When Gene died, a part of me died, too. He was someone I could count on, he taught me how to change a tire, how to do advanced math, how to take care of my car. I really miss him. Also, I think he was spiritual but maybe not religious. He had great values and loved his family very much.
