Acknowledging expressions of sympathy from your family and friends is more than proper funeral etiquette. For many, these thank you notes are a comforting part of the healing process to gain closure during a difficult time.
Although it is not necessary to send thank you notes to everyone who attends the funeral service, it is important to express your gratitude to those who do something special.
Sympathy Tribute Examples:
- Someone who sends or brings flowers
- Someone who makes a memorial donation
- Someone who helps the family financially
- Someone who helps provide food, transportation, baby sits or assists you in any way
- The Pallbearers
- The Clergy
