Could you also make a date to meet up shortly after the funeral and go out for a day eg did he have a favourite place?
Sometimes all the emphasis is on getting through the funeral and people can tail away afterwards.
She might appreciate something to look forward to in the days after.
My husband died suddenly and one if the nicest things one of my friends did was send me a hamper. It was such a lovely gesture, and meant a lot. I did have a lot of flowers which were also lovely, but the hamper was really appreciated
My cousin's husband has died at 42 of cancer and I cannot make the funeral. They have two young children.
I am looking at ways of letting them know that I am thinking about them and I was looking at sending something in addition to a card. Would a hamper be appropriate rather than flowers? Just wondering if anyone has any advice. I am sorry to encroach on this board but I really want to let Dcousin know I am thinking of them.
