When you send a flower to a funeral, it would enable the people grieving know that you are thinking about them and that they are not alone. And when you send a flower with a note where you wrote down just the right words, it would make the flower more valuable. Signing just the right words on a funeral flower can be a bit challenging. So to make it a lot easier, I am going to outline some tips you can follow on how to sign a funeral flower.
Tips on What to Write on a Funeral Flower
Signing a funeral flower can prove to be a bit overwhelming and confusing at the same time. But with the right inspiration, it simply flows out of you like water. There are three basic people you should address a funeral flower to that would require you adding a sympathetic note you sign to make them feel better. These are the parents, partner and children of the deceased. Sending a funeral flower to either of them would go a long way in providing comfort to them.
When addressing the funeral flowers to the deceased parents
You can sign a funeral flower to the deceased parents. This way you are trying to offer them comfort. Signing it might not be all that rosy and easy because of what to write down, but with the proper guidance, it would get a lot easier.
In the flowers you are signing to the deceased parents, you want to include a few experiences you had with their child. Keep it brief and straight to the point. And don’t forget to include your name after you have written what you want to write. Writing about the life of the deceased is a great way of making the parents of the deceased feel proud of their child.
Also, when signing the funeral flowers, also have it at the back of your mind that the whole idea is to write about the deceased and not about yourself. You can have something like this on the funeral flower note, “I am sending prayers and sympathy for guidance and comfort as you pass through the difficult period ahead. Your child had such a positive impact on me, and for that, I thank you a million times.”
When addressing the funeral flowers to the deceased partner
The partner of the deceased is someone else you can consider signing a funeral flower too. When you sign the flowers to the partner of the deceased, you are actually paying homage to the deceased. Addressing the funeral flowers to the deceased partner is not wrong; in fact, by sending the flowers you make the deceased partner know that friends and family are grieving too. It brings this sense of unity among a group of people that all knew the deceased.
A typical example of how a flower being signed to the deceased partner should sound like, “I am so sorry to hear that your partner passed on. My sincere hope is that you can find the comfort and strength in the love your family has for you. May it also be a light that reveals just how many people your partner’s life inspired. A person this wonderful would not be forgotten.” Even though the write up is short, it strikes the perfect blow you need for the perfect signing of a funeral flower to the deceased partner.
When addressing the funeral flowers to the deceased children
Lastly, you can consider signing a funeral flower to the deceased children. After the departure of a friend or loved one, the children of the deceased would be devastated, and you as a friend or family is responsible for looking after the children, at least emotionally. It is the least you can do on behalf of the deceased. It might not really be what you planned for, but it is definitely something worth doing. When you sign a flower and address it to the children of the deceased, what you are actually doing is that you are offering a hand to the children, to help them deal with the pain of losing a parent.
There are numerous ways of actually signing on a flower to be addressed to the deceased children, and a typical example is, “May the happy memories of your parent comfort you. You and your family members are always in my thought. I remember those good old days I enjoyed with your parent, and it was such a big difference your parent made in the life of so many people. I am so lucky to have known your parent first hand.”
If you noticed something about the pattern of how the flowers were signed you would notice that flowers were signed in such a way that they give so much respect to the deceased. So much respect such that even the children of the deceased would have no choice but to feel proud of their parent who just passed away. The comfort and strength the words you signed on a note with the funeral flower, which you sent to the deceased children goes a long way in making them move on with life. So, choose your words wisely and sign the deceased children a note to make them feel proud of their parent.
