It's always an honor to be able to work on funeral flowers for someone. People use funeral flowers as a way to honor the person's most admirable qualities. This particular time, I worked on the funeral of Bryan Melgar, who died of Cancer at the age of 18. As I worked with the family to prepare for the funeral, I learned that Bryan, who'd had cancer since a young boy, who even though he'd gone through surgeries every month since 6 years old, still graduated high school at the top of his class. He loved sports even though it was a rare occasion for him to actually participate. He was brave, honest, and pure.
