Not attending a funeral is a very difficult experience for people, in spite of recent suggestions that ‘no fuss’ is a good idea. The reality is many will feel additional grief, especially if they could not say goodbye properly. This simple reflection can be emailed or posted to those who can’t attend a funeral, and then used at home on the day. Let people know the date and time to use it, so they know others will be doing the same. It won’t ever replace the comfort of actually being there, but in the current circumstances, it may go some way to help mourners feel connected.
You can also use the print-ready artwork attachment and send this to a local printer for a professional print quality batch for posting out.
Note that a large print black and white version of the reflection is also available below.
