If flowers are not wanted

Sometimes the bereaved do not want any flowers and instead request donations to a charity that was particularly close to the heart of the departed.
It is important to respect this wish. As a rule, bank details are supplied for donations. Remember to note the destination for the donation. And yet: flowers are not decoration in the case of bereavement.

There is simply no better way of expressing the longing of a person for a life after death. There is so much comfort, so much confidence, so much hope in flowers, and this is so beneficial for the bereaved.
So if you do not want to appear at the service empty handed, you can always take a single stem such as a rose, a sunflower or a lily.

Take this to the graveyard and lay it on the coffin or by the urn.
