Should You Send Thank-You Notes to Funeral Guests?

Businesswoman Writing Notes

When you are grieving the loss of a loved one, it can be difficult to think of anything else. However, during your time of sadness, it is important to show gratitude for the kindness and support afforded you by friends and family members. A simple thank-you note is an easy way to express your gratitude to those who go out of their way during the funeral, doing things such as bringing flowers, assisted with child care, or helped with transportation. It’s also a good idea to send thank-you notes to those who make memorial donations in honor of your loved one, and to the pallbearers and any musicians involved in the funeral. Though there is no hard and fast rule about when to send these notes, two or three weeks after the funeral service is generally deemed appropriate.
