My daughter's mother-in-law died unexpectedly in her sleep and was discovered on a Saturday morning. I called Alan's that afternoon, as soon as I heard. They were able to get a nice arrangement of flowers to the house within a few hours, while her family was still just gathering in shock at the news. My husband and I live 6 hrs away from Palmdale, so it was nice to have such lovely flowers represent us during this unhappy occasion. I will use them again.
