Flowers Serve Many Purposes

Often, people send flowers for the funeral and the gravesite, or they may send them for the family to have at home afterward. Funeral flowers come in wreaths, cut and arranged in vases, potted or as sprays. If family members or friends are unable to attend the funeral, they may send flowers to your home directly to show their condolences.
