There is a common denominator in sending flowers. It is sentiment. Sentiment is actually a complex organisation of ideas, feelings, and instincts which are built up in the course of an individual's experience. Sentiment serves a very vital human need.

Flowers are sent to funerals for several reasons. First, flowers are a means of expression. It is often difficult for those mourning a death to put feelings into words. Flowers are a visual expression of love, sympathy, and respect. They are means of lending support and sharing the burden of grief.

We have traditionally expressed our respect for the dead, and sympathy for the bereaved by sending flowers. This long-standing custom helps people express their innermost feelings. Funeral flowers are for the living and the dead. They are tokens of respect for the deceased.

Flowers create a background of warmth and beauty adding to the dignity and consolation of the funeral service. Following the service, the bereaved are left with an indelible impression of the funeral. Flowers are a very important item in this lasting impression, for they directly affect the warmth and comfort generated by the "memory picture."

The more comforting the memory picture, the more easily it is recalled by the bereaved; and the more vivid is the reinforcement of reality and actualisation of loss. Flowers do not wither and die in the mind of the bereaved. They are recalled time and again as indelible memories.

On the following pages you will find a wide range of floral tributes in various designs and colours to help create that indelible memory, express your love, sympathy and respect. and share the burden of grief.
