Gravesite delivery

I interviewed a man named Hugh Davis, 68, on Thursday morning. He's a retired journalist and communications specialist who now works temp jobs overseeing education seminars. I am working on a future story about people who remain working after retirement.

Davis even delivered flowers for awhile. "We used to take one rose out to a grave and put it on every Wednesday," he said.

Have you ever sent flowers to a gravesite?
