Sending flowers is one of the oldest traditions when someone has lost a loved one and selecting the best message for sympathy flowers is important. Flowers are sent when someone passes away for several reasons. One, you can express yourself through flowers. It is a visual expression of love, sympathy, and respect. They are also a representation of support and show that you share in the burden of grief of the loss. However, it is not enough to just send flowers, but there must be a meaningful sympathy message with it.
Choosing a message for sympathy flowers is even more difficult than choosing the right flowers. The message must be short, but at the same time must mean a lot. There are three types of sympathy cards that can be sent with flowers. These are personal sympathy cards, generic sympathy cards, and religious sympathy cards. Personal sympathy cards are personalized cards and what we recommend. Personalizing the message adds affection to the sympathy you are offering. If you can’t think of what to say, sending a generic sympathy card is better than not expressing your sympathy at all. A generic card may include a non-religious or religious message.
