People don’t always remember what you said to them or gave to them but they do remember how you made them feel.
Oftentimes, the bereaved are overwhelmed with flowers, food, and condolences before and during a funeral.
But when the flowers have died, the food has been eaten, and the friends have all gone home,
a gift from you is like a hug that whispers “I’m still thinking of you!”
So, even though you may send your condolences at the time of the funeral,
don’t forget to follow up with a sympathy gift a few weeks or even a month later.
