I take this moment to commend you for the article “Spreading the Love." What a great human interest story.
My deepest appreciation to Hy-Vee team members Jedidiah States and Ashley Szelag for repurposing such beauty. I know the residents and team at Brookestone Acres loved the roses, perfect for the month of love and this snowy February. I’ve heard many wonderful comments and compliments.
The greater story is the heart in which the flowers were given. Jedidiah and Ashley, thank you for sharing the roses, the joy, with members of the community who have given us so much. They’ve made the community of Columbus the special place that it is. They often sacrificed to exist or provide for their family and support the community throughout the years. To remember them and bring them joy is a wonderful gift.
On behalf of the residents and team members of Brookestone Acres, thank you!
