Sympathy

We are available to assist you with a single expression of sympathy or an entire funeral floral tribute. If normal work hours are not convenient for a consultation an evening appointment is an option for the bereaved. In special circumstances (tragedy, frailty or disability) we would arrange to meet at a personal location.

Because of the short window of preparation for sympathy/funeral florals there are some limitations in ordering variety and color of flowers; for example, lilies take several days to open properly and show their beauty. You are encouraged to designate your preferences and we will find the most available flowers to express your feelings.

Please note that in consideration of the family and the funeral director we prefer to make our funeral deliveries at minimum 2 to 3 hours prior to the beginning of funeral services. Consequently last minute orders are encouraged to be sent to the family’s home after the services are completed or several days later when they are often greatly appreciated.
