It isn’t always possible to attend a funeral service, but you can still provide emotional support to the bereaved family. Order a floral arrangement and send it to the funeral home. Standing sprays and wreaths are always appreciated. If you’re sending flowers to the family’s home, consider sending a floral basket, vase arrangement, or potted plant. If the family is Jewish, do not send flowers to either location, as it is against Jewish custom.
