What You Need To Know About Funeral Cards

If you need to send a note of sympathy to a bereaved family, it is good to know that you can do this in a number of ways. Funeral cards can be given with flowers or by themselves. In this digital age, it is not uncommon to send a letter of sympathy via email.

You can get notes at your local stores or you can pen your own. A simple letter becomes more special when it is handwritten. If your handwriting is illegible, consider buying a commercially printed version. You just need to sign it and mail it right away to get to the bereaved family at an appropriate time.

In most cultures, it is expected that grieving friends and relatives send letters of sympathy. They can be sent if you attend the memorial service or not. It is essential to do so if you cannot go to the deceased person's interment. It is acceptable to mail the note after or prior to the burial.

In response to your note of sympathy, the family of the deceased is also expected to send thank you notes to those who were at the service and to people who send letters of sympathy. A family member closest to the dead person usually writes and sends them. Expect to receive one in the mail a week or two after the burial.

Sending a bundle of flowers with a note is also common practice. Try to send a bouquet during the wake, before the actual burial. You can have a flower delivery service do this for you. Just make sure that the blossoms come with a personal sympathy note from you.

Pre-printed funeral cards can be found in many bookstores near your home. You can also find them online. Before you purchase one, read the message inside and make sure the content is along the lines of your thoughts. It is also common practice to add something in your own words.
