In Lieu of Flowers did not mean In Lieu of Flowers at the end of 09-YourFuneralGuy.

The Funeral Industry is trying to change the Meaning of in Lieu of Flowers

To Most Folks In Lieu of Flowers means do not send flowers-Instead Make a donation here. In 2009 The Walter Cronkite Family, Ted Kennedy Family  and Other celebrities used in lieu of flowers as a means to provide donation to their Favorite charity.

It seems that the funeral and floral industry has funded a study that concludes In Lieu of Flowers does not mean In Lieu of Flowers. This was called important at ConnectingDirectors.com and published in the Earth times!

Funeral Flower sales were significantly down in 2009.

Where will Funeral Spin stop! To spend money on a study that attempts to increase Funeral Flower Sales is indeed sad.

Many Funeral Homes sell their own flowers. It is usually best  not to purchase flowers from a funeral home! The best place to Purchase flowers is from wholesalers on and off the Internet. This is a little wedding floer secret as well.

For some Families in Lieu of Flowers sometimes contains a request for donation to the family. For some those funds go to help pay for the Funeral.

Flowers may momentarily comfort BUT THEY ARE NOT AN INTEGRAL PART OF the Grieving Process.

The study was sponsored by ta Floral society and conducted at Harvard University.

    I just read your blog about in lieu of flowers, and I am not sure what to say- to suggest to purchase flowers from wholesalers on and off net- what a crock- it is about the fact that flowers are HELPFUL emotionally in times of grief- the only INTEGRAL PART of grieving is the normal steps of all emotions till acceptance. “To spend money on a study that attempts to increase Funeral Flower Sales is indeed sad.” – BAD. Flowers help, and we in the industry know it -go ahead an order online, the flowers may be deceased also- donate to charity- GREAT – whats wrong with BOTH.Florist know flowers- but hten again- you were on fox news- another place for half truths- Good Day
