Bloom­ing mar­vel­lous ser­vice earns praise

Mid Louth Independent - - OPINION | YOUR LETTERS -

Dear Sir,

I am an ex-pat liv­ing out­side Wash­ing­ton DC. I re­cently had a sud­den death in the fam­ily. The morn­ing of the fu­neral, I needed flow­ers in a few hours to go to Col­lon.

My friend gave me the phone num­ber of Ar­bour Blooms in Drogheda. I called first thing nine o’clock and or­dered quite an ex­pen­sive ar­range­ment for the cas­ket, gave my Amer­i­can Ex­press num­ber and the girl promised to de­liver to the house by 10.30am.

It ar­rived on time and was not just gor­geous (my nephew sent pho­tos), and I was de­lighted.

What I did not know was the card num­ber I gave was in­cor­rect and no pay­ment was taken.

That an­gel Ann-Marie called later that even­ing to let me know. She knew from my voice how im­por­tant it was to me for the flow­ers to ar­rive on time, as I could not get here my­self.

I shall never for­get the kind­ness, as it was a very emo­tional time for me, so far away. I in­tend to find her when next I’m in Ire­land, to thank her prop­erly.

Yours, Sarah Jane Bellew Po­tomac, Mary­land USA.
