Tuesday morning, employees at Aberdeen's Wedding Flowers on the Northwest Side opened up their offices to find that they had been robbed of $3,000... and a stack of toys that was to have been delivered to children at a number of local area hospitals. After the story got reported in the local media, the offices were flooded with offers of replacement money and toys. Not too surprising, considering 'tis the season to be generous, but it's still nice to know that kids in hospitals will have a happier holiday season this year.
