Following Proper Funeral Etiquette

During a funeral, following the proper etiquette will help you feel comfortable while offering condolences to family and friends. Although it may not always be easy to know the right thing to do, this video will help.

Start by sending flowers to the funeral home or family home, or making a donation to a charity in lieu of flowers if requested by the family. Attend the wake at the funeral to pay respects to the lost person. At the funeral, dress appropriately in dark clothing and tell the family that you are sorry for their loss. Attend any post-funeral meal or gathering to offer further support.
