Funerals are a time to celebrate the life of a loved one who has passed away. While somber, they are also an opportunity to reflect on happy memories and to let those grieving know that they are not alone. If you have a funeral service to attend, you may be wondering what to write on the funeral flowers you send.
With years of experience providing dignified funerals to San Antonio residents, Funeral Caring USA has some suggestions on what to write on funeral flowers.
Ideas for What to Write on a Funeral Flower Card
“In Loving Memory” is a classic phrase to include on funeral flowers. You can also add the name of the deceased and dates of birth and death. A simple “Thinking of you at this difficult time” is also appropriate.
If you knew the deceased well, you may want to share a fond memory or quote that reminds you of them. For close family members, something like “We will always love and miss you” conveys both your sorrow and your love. If the funeral is for a child, you may want to write something like “Fly high with the angels.”
These are just a few ideas to get you started. Ultimately, it is up to you what you write on your funeral flowers. Just be sure that it comes from the heart.
Other phrases you can include:
“With deepest sympathy”
“A life well lived”
“In our hearts forever”
“Always in our thoughts”
“Gone but never forgotten”
How to Send Funeral Flowers
If you are attending the funeral service, you can take the flowers with you. If you are sending them ahead of time, just be sure to include the name of the funeral home and the address so they can be delivered promptly.
You can also order funeral flowers online or by phone and have them delivered directly to the funeral home. Just be sure to place your order at least a day in advance so they can be delivered on time.
When choosing funeral flowers, you may want to consider the favorite flower of the deceased. White lilies are a popular choice for funerals as they symbolize purity and innocence.
