Mourning Cecil Shearin

Anyone who ever worked with Cecil Shearin, co-owner of Elizabeth House Flowers, is in mourning over his death at age 62. He was so talented and such a wonderful man.

He was so respected that almost every floral shop in town sent one gorgeous arrangement after another to the visitation at Hankins & Whittington. He did so many stunning arrangements for weddings, parties and events that everyone from mothers-of-the-brides, event planners, socialites, philanthropists and community leaders are mourning his loss.

Those who loved him and his work know that he fulfilled his destiny of using his talent to make the world a more beautiful place and that he did it with great kindness and humor.
