Interesting quote. It's easy to take people for granted while they are alive, and then feel regret when they unexpectedly die.

I send flowers to honor the dead, not that I have any regrets.

Sad, but often true. I'd rather have some flowers now while I can appreciate them and know someone cares for me.
