What Is the Proper Etiquette for Thank You Cards for Funeral Gifts?

Proper etiquette for sending thank you cards in response to a funeral gift or flowers includes writing a personal, hand-written note, mailing the card within a month following the funeral and acknowledging the specific gift received. A signature from the eldest or group of family members is recommended.

When writing a thank you card for a funeral gift, donation or bouquet of flowers, the family should write a sentence or two acknowledging the gift, and offer thanks for the support provided for the family. A special memory or anecdote about the deceased can also be shared in the thank you card.
