Many personalized memorial gifts are perfect even in situations where you do not know the person very well. They can be perfect for co-workers, neighbors, distant relatives and business associates.
We are not always in a position to offer personal support to the bereaved, but we can send a quick card or gift.
This thoughtful gesture can add to the total effect of everybody offering their love and support. We can be a part of the supportive group surrounding the bereaved that helps them get through one day at a time. It’s hard to articulate just how much of a difference it can make.
Your small gift can make all the difference because you are not the only one doing it.
Just the fact that somebody is acknowledging their loss and honoring their loved one can help make one day easier.
It is showing the bereaved that others care and that the world is not just continuing on as usual without anybody noticing that their loved one is gone from them
