What Can You Send To A Funeral Home?
When a friend or co-worker experiences the loss of a loved one, you may not be sure what you can do to help. You may have been through loss yourself and you want to extend your support so they know you are there. But at the same time, you aren’t their family, so how much can you really do? Every little bit helps and many people decide to send something to the Surprise, AZ funeral home to comfort their friend and show their respect to their loved one. Here are a few options to consider:
One of the most popular gifts for someone in mourning is a flower arrangement of some kind. If you know what flowers the person who passed away likes, or your friend enjoys, you can send those. Otherwise, flower shops have beautiful arrangement options that are created just for funerals. When you send your flowers to the funeral home, they can be used in the background of a viewing, funeral service, or memorial service to decorate the room.
While flowers are temporary, some people choose to get a plant, like a peace lily, that their friend can take home with them after the services at the funeral home are complete. Every time they see that plant and care for it, they will remember their loved one. It is a nice, longer-lasting way to show your support for their grief.
A Memorial Donation
Some families will ask that people send donations to a certain charity in honor of their loved one. You can do that directly or you can send a check to the funeral home and they will collect the gifts and ensure it gets to the right place. If you don’t know where the family wants money to go, you can just send your check to the funeral home and they can specify its direction from there. Some families may donate it to a charity while others could use the help in covering funeral expenses.
A Sympathy Card
Depending on your relationship with your friend, you might simply want to send a card to let them know you are thinking of them during this difficult time. Even a show of support of this nature can mean a lot to someone who is going through the mourning process.
