What to Send Instead of Flowers
Grief, Send, Friends, Death, Flowers Arrangements, Funeral Ideas, Flower Arrangements, Daddy Memories, Funeral Homes
When my dad died there were more flower arrangements at the funeral home than we could count. Though we were overwhelmed by the support of friends and family that those flowers represented, the tradition of sending flowers has always struck me as a bit strange. Someone has died, so their friends and family all give them something that will die too. Hmmm . . . Don’t get me wrong, my family is Greek and Greeks love flowers at funerals -- the more the better. So I know that sometimes flowers are the perfect gesture after a death. But with my personal aversion to giving flowers after a loss there are a few alternatives worth sharing for those looking for alternatives. This is just a start, so if you have other ideas of what to send instead of flowers please leave a comment. We want as comprehensive a list as possible.
Fruit flies and all

this is true. My brother recently died of cancer, after about a month my mother had a dream. In her dream, she and my brother were standing in her kitchen, he hugged her and said "Don't cry Mom, I'm okay". She said it was so real, she could literally feel the hug. After my father passed away many years ago, I had a similar dream, he visited me and told me I would be okay and that he loved me. If you have had an encounter like this, please post your experience in the comment section.

Every so often your loved ones will open the door from Heaven, and visit you in a dream, Just to say "Hello" and to remind you they are still with you, just in a different way.........
I have the most vivid dreams about Anthony. We have conversations. I thought maybe I was going crazy but I think loved ones can talk to us in dreams.
♡ We lost Dad 5 years ago today. Everyday things can stop me in my tracks so I can simply enjoy a memory of him. I love to share memories of Dad with family and laugh; he was such a character! ♡

Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise. -Carolyn Myss Quote #quote #quotes #quoteoftheday
Caroline Myss quote.
We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.
