Life in prison for Ridgefield florist in partner's murder - Rutherford Daily VoiceTuesday, March 19, 2019
Battinelli during the trial as a “cold, calculating” hunter who killed Murphy, his partner of 20 years, with a .22-caliber rifle in their G&M Wholesale Flowers shop on Midland Avenue in January 2010. Murphy was on the verge of discovering that Battinelli had stolen $81,883 from him — in part, by taking payments in cash — when he was killed, she said. Neary insisted authorities rushed to judgment and got the wrong man — and pointed instead to one of their drivers. A delivery man for the business found Murphy’s body on Jan. 6, 2010 and “literally ran across Midland Avenue to Garfield Police headquarters across the street,” Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time. Neary told the jurors that the driver had immigration issues and was in hot water with Murphy for a series of flat tires. Murphy had questioned him about the flats that morning before he left to take a delivery to Glen Rock, he noted. Battinelli not only had “motive, means and opportunity” — he was the only person left in the building with Murphy when the driver and another left that morning, Grootenboer countered. After the shooting, she said, Battinelli drove across town to the City Hall on a “non-emergency errand” to buy parking passes, she said. “By his own admission, Thomas Battinelli was the last person to see Michael Murphy,” the prosecutor said. “It didn’t take long for Battinelli, an experienced hunter, to kill his unsuspecting friend.” A Garfield police dispatcher later testified that Battinelli was still at the City Hall when they called him to report that Murphy had been found dead. The murder weapon was found in the walk-in refrigerator at G&M under a pile of decorative branches, Grootenboer said. Battinelli bought the Browning .22 lever-action rifle at Ramsey Outdoor, she told jurors. When a Garfield police sergeant found it, she said, “the trigger was in the locked back position indicating it had been fired. It had one spent .22 caliber shell casing inside, and one .22 caliber bullet. “The bullet had a “B” stamp on the bottom of it. On January 6, 2010 when investigators searched Thomas Battinelli’s house, they found the same ammunition there.” Subsequent testing turned up Battinelli’s right, middle fingerprint on the gun. During his closing arguments, Neary ( left ) told jurors: “The fact it is Tom Battinelli’s gun and fingerprints isn’t proof.” STORY / PHOTOS: Mary K.

Flowers from all over the world sent to El Paso victim's funeral - WKMG News 6 & ClickOrlandoTuesday, September 10, 2019
EL PASO, Texas (CNN) - Antonio Basco stood in front of his wife's casket for two hours Friday hugging strangers. The El Paso man initially thought no one would show up for his wife's visitation service. His wife, Margie Reckard, 63, was killed when a gunman opened fire at a Walmart. The couple had no relatives in the area. Basco walked into the La Paz Faith Memorial and Spiritual Center to a storm of applause and a procession of people wanting to hug him. The building was at capacity with 400 mourners. Outside, another 700 waited in nearly 100-degree heat to pay respects, according to funeral organizers. "People were telling me they came from different faiths, different cities. It's just incredible how much love and support every single one of you has shown," Reckard's grandson, Tyler, said. Margie 'always had a smile on her face' Reckard's son, D... https://www.clickorlando.com/news/national/flowers-from-all-over-the-world-sent-to-el-paso-victims-funeral

Petals by the Beach uses donation to spread kindness through flowers - A beach florist got an unusual contribution and request recently: $500 from a Pacific Beach woman to pass out flowers to random passers-by. “We have never seen such generosity ... - San Diego Community NewsTuesday, September 10, 2019
That was pretty cool.”The donation came from Pacific Beach resident Thera Storm, who is a grief counselor. Storm said the recent back-to-back mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, that left at least 31 people dead, prompted her to do something extraordinary.“After those two shootings within 13 hours of each other, I noticed the reaction on Facebook was just so scary and negative,” said Storm. “The next morning I sat down and thought, ‘What could I do that’s positive?’ Then I had the idea of donating money to a local flower shop.”Storm was almost afraid of the reaction she’d get from Cummings, whom she didn’t know, when she approached her with her unorthodox plan. But Storm shouldn’t have worried.“She donated a generous amount at our shop for us to pass out flowers to complete strangers,” said Cummings. “She wasn’t paying it forward. In her words, ‘She wanted to spread kindness to the masses.’”Cummings took Storm’s money and honored her request.“For two weeks I’ve been passing out flowers every day to random people walking by of all different ages,” Cummings said, adding she wasn’t embarrassed about it. “I just said, ‘We had a customer recently donate a significant amount of money, and we’re spreading kindness and happiness.’”The reaction to Storm’s flower donation has been uplifting. “People said that is so nice, we need more of that,” said Cummings, adding, “A few people even cried. I began taking pictures (of recipients) and putting them on our Facebook and Instagram pages.”“I feel like I had a very small, passive role,” said Storm of her gesture. “All of the work has been done by Melissa.”It’s Storm's practice to take 10 percent of every paycheck and stash it away to do something special at a later date. Asked if being a grief counselor facto... http://www.sdnews.com/view/full_story/27660789/article-Petals-by-the-Beach-uses-donation-to-spread-kindness-through-flowers-?instance=bbp
