Today we have a guest post on Funeral Thank you notes or Funeral thank -you cards. How to Choose Funeral Thank You Cards
Losing a loved one is one of, if not, the most painful and difficult experience that anyone will go through in life. More than the physical loss, the emotional aspects of losing a loved one can figuratively drive the person to hell and despair. That’s why whenever there’s a death in the family, it’s very comforting to know that there are people who are and will be there for you and your family through thick and thin. Hugs of sympathy, presence of friends, and condolences from different people can, at least temporarily, lift the pain. And after everything’s done with the wake, memorial and funeral, choosing and writing funeral thank you notes is one way of showing the attendees that you and your family are thankful for their love and support.
If you’re in the unfortunate place where you need to send thank you notes after funeral, then here are some tips and methods that you can follow to do this task.
First, when you’re sending funeral thank you cards, you don’t really have to worry about the timeframe. For the meantime, you don’t have to worry about your family and friends. They’re not expecting you to write funeral thank you notes immediately. You take your time and don’t let others pressure you to write these thank you notes after funeral.
Second, you don’t have to write an original message for your funeral thank you notes. In fact, few people do this. You only write personal messages for people who really matters to you and/or to the deceased alone. In fact, if you don’t have the inkling to write a unique and personal note, then don’t. But if you really want to write a note or message, it’s okay to make it short.
It’s more ideal to buy pre-printed notes from bookstores. You just have to make an effort in choosing the message that you want to convey to the recipients of the funeral thank you notes. You can just add the name of the recipients to make it more personalized. Again, if you don’t have the strength or the time to do this on your own, you can ask the help of your immediate family members or closest friends to write the names for you.
It’s true that this task/act can make you cry or make you numb. After all, you’re thanking other people for joining and supporting you when you buried your loved one. But this task, in some way, can help you move on.
