Sorry, FUD, you know I usually supply such info. Must have been asleep at the swtich when I composed that post. In any case, link now appended.

I'd like to know if the coroner dug a little deeper, even though the death wasn't of a suspicious nature. Too bad there isn't a follow up we can access. The delivery of roses and her death are really too coincidental. I'd put my money on a heart attack - it has been known to happen even at that age.

She was just so shocked that her husband remembered and/or that he sent her flowers.

Maura Isles would figure out how he killed her and Jane Rizzoli would take him down for it. (I like that show!) :cheese:

In one version of sleeping beauty, she pricks he finger on a rose thorn.

@Patty: It's one of the better ones.

Could the culprit have been a venomous spider?

A bad reaction to any kind of insect concealed(accidently) in the flowers is a good guess. But, I think for a life threatening reaction there would also be noticeable trauma, redness and swelling, to the area where the bite occurred.

Well there is my excuse for the wife. Honey, I was going to get you roses but I just read a story today on WU that said roses will kill you.
