After the Funeral

After the funeral services have ended and all distraction for the grieving family has ceased, realization sets in. Many people experiencing such a loss appreciate being thought of in the weeks and months following the funeral. Sending the family a plant or flowers with a personal note reminding them of your continued support can do wonders to uplift one's spirit.

Some tips and/or ideas for offering support to the grieving individual would be to offer to clean their home or help out with other daily chores. You could invite them over for dinner or for a coffee/tea. Small gestures such as this will remind the person or people in greiving that there are people thinking of them.
