Ideas for Memorial Gifts and Donations
When it comes to planning funeral services, there are many decisions that must be made in a short span of time. Funeral homes recommend that the surviving family consider what type of memorial gifts they would prefer. Memorial gifts such as personalized plaques and psalm blankets can often be supplied by funeral homes. Some families choose to ask for a donation to their charity of choice in lieu of flowers, and this notice can be added to the deceased’s obituary. It’s possible that friends or family will wish to make a donation to the surviving family directly. In this case, it’s best to be prepared to graciously accept or deny their contributions.
