Remember & Honor Our Veterans

As the holiday season approaches, many families eagerly prepare for the joy and excitement of the days ahead, while the families of fallen veterans feel a deep sense of loss and sadness again as they brace themselves to endure the absence of their loved one through the holidays. We encourage these families to consider participating in the Wreaths Across America program, a wreath-laying ceremony to remember and honor our veterans by placing wreaths or flowers on their grave sites as a memorial. Find solace in the act of paying tribute to our fallen heroes this season. The floral artisans at Walter Knoll Florist are eager to create the perfect tribute wreath or flowers for your special ceremony this season.
