Local Florist Murdered
« on: February 29, 2008, 10:44:05 AM »
Please pray for Felicia Hosany and her mourning family and friends.  Her husband found her body last night in our own flower shoppe, and it is believed she was a victim of a robbery that escalated to murder.  Her and her shoppe have a special meaning to me, since when I was going to meet my fiance's (then girlfriend's) parents for the first time, I went to her shoppe to buy flowers.  She was an absolute saint and really had a love for her work and the people around her.  She could even put up with me, a notorious perfectionist (especially when it comes to flowers).  :laugh:  Even though it was out of my way, no matter when I needed flowers, or someone I knew needed them, I always headed to the same shoppe.

Please pray for all those involved, including those who committed this awful crime, that they may repent and come forward.

May her memory be eternal.   :(

May her memory be eternal, and her family and friends be comforted at this time.

May those who perpetrated this crime also come to repentance for this heinous act.

Eternal be her memory.
May the perpetrators respond to God's awakening Grace.

Memory Eternal!

Lord have mercy! May He meant the evil for good.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Memory eternal.  What an awful thing.

So sad and cruel.

May God grant eternal comfort to Felicia. May she rest in peace. Dear Jesus, please help family and friends of the innocent victim.
