Facebook Saves Grandma Marge’s Ash

  FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Grandma Marge’s ashes weren’t for sale, but a bargain hunter in Florida walked away with them anyway.

A touch of Grandma Marge was put in a potted violet, her favorite plant, after her death. The plant was accidentally sold at a weekend yard sale in the Panhandle town of Fort Walton Beach.

Piper Gaffrey had stepped away from the yard sale when her husband sold the violet for an undisclosed amount, not realizing some of Marjorie Potts Gaffrey was in the soil.

Piper Gaffrey scattered some of her 99-year-old grandmother in the violet when she died in February.

When she discovered it had been sold, she pleaded on Facebook for the buyer to take care of it. Fortunately, the plant was bought by someone she knew. It was returned and is thriving in Gaffrey’s new home.

The moral of the story is don’t defriend your Facebook friends even if they are a potted plant..
