Life is such a complex process which comes with so many of its own vagaries. It is a journey that just carries us on with it. Every day, we keep ourselves busy, working, moving, and basically living.
All day as well as all year long, all we ever do is get caught up in its thralls, its ebbs and flows, the accompanying material pursuits, in working, earning, eating, sleeping. So busy are we in living, that we don’t even realise where it begins and where it ends. No one really knows when we will die. It may either be slow, painful or quick and relatively pain-free. Death or the stopping of life is something we don’t really want to think about. Although it is a reality, avoiding its thought seems to be the best possible way to handle it.
Although the thought of death touching us seems a little unreal, when someone else succumbs to it, that’s when reality sets in. But what do we do to face it or console people who have had their near and dear ones snatched away. All we can offer are words of condolence or flowers that show we too mourn with the bereaved family.
Once a person dies, commemorating his life and mourning his death are the only things that are left to be done. Funeral flowers are offered by some, whereas helping out the needy in the dead person’s name is done by others.
Funeral flowers are probably the best and most profound offerings that are given at a funeral. They represent the colourful, rich way the person has lived his life and commemorate the void that death has left behind. Flowers also show the sympathy of the giver while letting the near and dear ones know that they are not alone.
Signifying a tribute to a person’s life, flowers, when chosen carefully and given at a funeral say more than words, what the person truly meant. This is the reason why many people go to great lengths to choose appropriate funeral flower arrangements that show their love.
Funeral Flowers can either be bouquets, wreaths or sprays. The commonest one is the funeral spray, placed upon an easel and made up of large flowers. Wreaths are another alternative made up of smaller flowers. Those unable to attend a funeral also tend to send flowers. This arrangement can either be made by contacting the neighbourhood flower shop or even an online store where the same day delivery flowers are made. Those unable to attend a funeral can send flower vases to a person’s home.
It doesn’t matter as to what kind of gesture will be appropriate to offer condolences. What matters is that this little gesture, even if it is just the giving of funeral flowers will show the bereaved family that they are not mourning alone at such a crucial period of time.
