A couple in Texas called off their wedding this past weekend because of the coronavirus--then paid it forward by donating their wedding flowers to three local assisted living facilities. "I just wanted somebody to be able to enjoy our flowers since we wouldn’t be able to," says bride-to-be Kristall Goytia. One of the senior homes that received the flowers, The Legacy at Forest Ridge, wrote on Facebook, "These are the beautiful people in our Legacy neighborhood! Thank you to Kristall Goytia for the donated flowers! Your kindness brought such joy to the residents today." Adds Legacy Ridge executive director Melissa Smith, "It is an honor and a blessing to know that amidst the chaos of COVID-19, our residents are not forgotten. Our seniors deserve every ounce of joy and recognition, and we are grateful to those who see their beauty."
