Funeral Etiquette - Part 3 - Flowers

When someone dies, it is somewhat of an automatic response for many of us to send flowers.

Whether it is a family member or a dear friend, but the impulse is the same.

After someone dies, the family home can sometimes resemble a florist that has run out of vases!

It certainly is a beautiful way to express love and sympathy, but it would also be lovely to receive some of those flowers after the funeral?

The weeks and months after someone dies can be the most difficult for the family.

For them, it feels like the whole world has not skipped-a-beat while they are dealing with incredible grief and sorrow.

The world still turns and their little corner is achingly empty.

For this reason, an email, a card or letter, or a text message is the perfect way to offer condolences immediately.

The flowers will be so much more appreciated further into the long, long period of grieving.

So perhaps consider sending your flowers on significant dates instead?

Maybe, one month on, or on a birthday, or anniversary?

Knowing the rest of the world hasn't forgotten them as the weeks and months pass is of great significance and comfort to the family.

The first year is tough and the family seem to face alone.

Your thoughtfulness in the tough times afterwards will be appreciated.

Every person is unique. Every family is different.
With us, every Funeral is Individual.
