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.
