From the Warren Commission deposition of Doris Nelson, emergency room nurse at Parkland Hospital, on JFK’s entrance into Trauma Room One after he had been shot in Dealy Plaza:
Mrs. NELSON: . . . do you want me to tell about Mrs. Kennedy and the flowers?
Mr. SPECTER: Yes; continue . . .
Mrs. NELSON: Mrs. Kennedy was walking beside the stretcher and the roses that she had been given at the airport were lying on top of the President and her hat was also lying on top of the President as he was brought into the emergency room.
Insignificant but oddly evocative details.
