What To Know When Concerning Funeral Cards

When you find out that someone you know is grieving from a death in the family, your first reaction would probably to offer help. It is also normal to offer some kind of token to express your sympathy. Most people give flower baskets but you can also send funeral prayer cards instead.

Religious families will appreciate that you have prayed for their lost loved one. It is a spiritual offering that is generally acceptable. If you want to give something else, consider sending a potted shrub as a token of remembrance. This shrub can be kept in the pot or planted into the ground to represent a long lasting memorial to the deceased.

Another great idea is to offer a slab of stone with a nice quote engraved in it. Instead of offering a card, this unique piece of decor can be installed in a garden. It can also be placed indoors in a special place of the house. Have something memorable etched into the piece that will bring back good memories of the dead.

You might want to create a photo album of the person who died and offer that to the family. Choose images that the deceased relatives have no copies of. At a time like this, those left behind often look for memorabilia of their loved one and a nice collection of pictures would be appreciated.

You bring food for the grieving family. This is a common offering and you can also pitch in if they are holding a reception after the funeral. It might be a good idea to offer non-perishable items for the guests. Food that will not spoil easily can be served throughout the entire wake.

It is a nice gesture to give prayer cards during the wake or after the burial. You can offer a card with a bouquet of flowers. Present it in a pretty leatherette folder or in a picture frame with a stand.
