Good Morning,

I work in ‘Friendly Floral’, next to the BB&T Bank and we recieved a request, that we think, is for you. Unfortunately for us, the voicemail that left the delivery was not very clear. We called the front desk and they gave us your email. The closest name and address matches you, so I thought i would email you first to see if you recognize the name and address of the sender.
