I worked at A New Leaf Florist, in the South Loop (Monadnock Building). Adrienne frequently visited this location, and would often purchase a small plant, or a single stem or flower, from the stacks. I fell in love with her personality, immediately. She gave the best hugs and told the funniest stories. I’m sad to learn of her passing, but I’m grateful for the short time that she was a part of my life. To her family, I send love and light. I am sorry for your loss. Adrienne was simply one of a kind.
