Basics To Learn When Picking Prayer 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.

Brining trays of food is common custom and a considerate one if the family of the dead is hosting an after-burial reception. Your contribution can be helpful at a time when grieving family members would rather not bother with preparing food for guests. Choose non-perishable items that can last till the burial.

You can offer prayer cards during or after the interment. You can also give it together with some flowers. Pay attention to the presentation of your card. A good way to present it is to have the card placed in a nice leather case.
