“I have decided to honor my father and my mother on behalf of the store,” she said. “I wanted to have something that would highlight the names of Carol and Ike. After my mother died, I prayed for advice on the next step. I felt the need to go in that direction. . “
As for the importance of the cardinal, Rogers says the bird is supposed to come when the deceased is present.
“Cardinals tended to come back right after my mother died,” she said. “So the red bird can be seen everywhere in my house.”
