Tips on How To Write Funeral Thank You
By Jitske Memoli
Writing funeral thank you notes might be difficult for
many people, especially during this time when they are
still grieving for the loss of their loved ones. Their
situation is understandable, and as guests, we should
give them some time to calm down and recover.
If you are in their situation and you think you have
already spent a reasonable amount of time to express
your grief, you might want to start sending out funeral
thank you notes to your friends and family members who
supported you on this very hard time. The following are
a few tips that might be helpful to you.
1. It is best to send out a thank you note that is
handwritten. This way, you make your visitors feel that
very personal connection you have with them. You make
them realize how much you appreciated their presence and
encouraging words when you were down and full of sorrow
2. Decide what type of paper you would use. There are
many types of paper available in bookstores and office
supply stores for you to select from. It all depends on
your taste. However, it is advisable that you purchase
something that is not too loud or too bright. Find
something that has a calming, peaceful and serene
effect. Those stationeries that come in light colors and
have a soft, good scent would be perfect.
3. Write a message that is sincere. It does not matter
how long it is, as long as you impart to them how
important their contribution to make you feel better
was. Use simple but strong words.
4. Aside from your friends and relatives, you should
also send a thank you note to the other people who
helped you organize the whole funeral. The people
working in the funeral home, the church, the florist,
and others, would never forget your thoughtfulness for
the rest of their lives once they receive a handwritten
note showing your gratitude to them.
5. If you have not decided on what to write on your
card, you can always settle for the generic ones. For
example, "Thank you for your support at this very sad
and difficult time. It is very much appreciated."
Your funeral thank you notes need not be full of flowery
words. The most important thing is that your message
comes from deep within you heart. That way, the
receivers will know that they have aided in your
sufferings, which was their primary reason for being
there for you in the first place.
