Owners of SWFL Edible Arrangements reflect, reassess role after Hurricane Ian

“It was something that she had never seen before,” said Matthew Palma, Jennifer’s son. “It was a unique experience. People send flowers for funerals; you can look at them.

It was an experience that touched her, and she wanted to have the opportunity to share that experience with other people.”
