I've been married to The Husband for 16.5 years. Prior to our marriage, we worked at the same office, so I was acquainted with him for 5 or so years before our marriage.
I did not know him when his paternal Grandmother passed away. If I've known him 20+ years, that means his Grandmother passed away 23-25 years ago. When she died, he took home a funeral ivy. When I met him, it was a big, lovely plant in a clay pot. The plant has been with us for our entire marriage.
The last 6-9 months, the plant has not looked well. I recently trimmed up the plant and kept only the most healthy pieces.
Do you have "funeral plants" from when your family members have passed on?
