Facts You Should Expect When Selecting Gifts For Funeral Service

Choose something that reflects your relationship with the deceased and the grieving family and show your support with one of these alternative gifts.

Consider supporting the grievers with a gift of food. Prepared meals, restaurant gift cards and snacks on hand help the family to make it through the difficult initial grieving time. This can be a one-time gift or an ongoing blessing, depending on the type of food. Fill their freezer with nutritious options and always keep allergies and tastes in mind. Be sure to include instructions for storage and reheating.
