Thoughtful Things to Do if You Miss a Funeral

Published: July 12, 2022

If you're unable to attend a funeral due to work or other commitments, you may be feeling guilty or like you're missing out. While it's impossible to replace actually attending the funeral, there are some thoughtful things you can do to show your support for the bereaved.

At Fort Worth Funerals & Cremations, we understand how difficult it is to lose a loved one. We also know how hard it can be to miss a funeral. That's why we're sharing four thoughtful things you can do if you miss a funeral.

Send Flowers

One of the most thoughtful things you can do if you miss a funeral is to send flowers. This is a simple way to show that you're thinking of the bereaved and wish you could be there with them. At Fort Worth Funerals & Cremations, we work with local florists to make buying funeral flowers easy. We can help you choose the right arrangement and ensure it's delivered on time.

Call, Write a Letter, or Send a Card

Another thoughtful thing you can do if you miss a funeral is to reach out to the bereaved in another way. You can call them, write them a letter, or send them a card. This lets them know that you're thinking of them and wish you could be there with them.

Make a Donation

It is common for funeral goers to make a donation to a charity in the name of the deceased. If you are unable to attend the funeral, consider making a donation to a charity that was important to the deceased. This is a thoughtful way to honor their memory and support a cause they cared about.

Provide Practical Support

If you're unable to attend the funeral, you can still provide practical support to the bereaved. This may include things like cooking meals, running errands, or providing childcare. This lets them know that you're there for them and are willing to help in any way you can.

If you're unable to attend a funeral, there are still some thoughtful things you can do to show your support for the bereaved.
