After losing a loved one, you’ll obviously grieve their passing. No two people grieve the same, and no two people grieve for the same amount of time. But whichever way you grieve and however long you grieve, you’ll likely be comforted by the kindness of friends, neighbors, and co-workers to reach out to help. So if someone you know goes out of their way to show some kindness during your time of need, you’ll want to thank them. It’s a good idea, therefore, to hand out thank you cards either before or after the direct cremation in Columbus, OH.
Why You Should Send Them?
If people were nice enough to give you words of encouragement, to offer to help out with chores, or to even make financial contributions, the least you can do is acknowledge these kind acts with thank you cards. You can bet that the recipients of the thank you cards will appreciate that their kind acts were appreciated.
Who Should You Specifically Acknowledge?
While it’s better to send out too many thank you cards than too few, you might want to specifically acknowledge certain people with cards and then thank others verbally. Be sure to give thank you cards to acknowledge people who went over and above the call to duty. Did anyone help you pick up family members from the airport? Did someone cook a meal and bring it over to your home? Did someone babysit for you so that you’d have time to plan the direct cremation? How about financial contributions? Did anyone offer you a financial gift to assist with expenses? In addition to sending thank you cards to people who helped you in these important ways, you’ll also want to send thank you cards to people who played a role at the memorial or celebration of life service. If in doubt over whether or not to send one to someone in particular, err on the side of caution and send one. You’ll feel better – and so will they.
How Should You Send Them?
How you send the thank you cards is really up to you. It’s a good idea to give them out in person if you can, but you can also send them by mail. Just be sure to include a short note of thanks and then personally sign the cards.
