It's something that no one wants to think about, it's also one of the hardest things that anyone has to go through, but in 2010 there were 24,586 infants who died of various illnesses and diseases according to the CDC. When something like this happens to someone you love it's truly an unspeakable loss so to show you care you can send flowers as a way to express your sadness and sympathy towards the grieving family. But what do you send on such a solemn occasion. What could properly express your sorrow and heartache?
