Need help wording a thank you letter for a business that sent funeral flowers?

A business that I do not work for sent flowers to my family members funeral. Any ideas how it should be worded?

Need help wording a thank you letter for a business that sent funeral flowers?
A thank you letter is much too formal. I think a handwritten thank you inside a thank you card would be more appropriate for such an occasion. The business I work for sends flower arrangements to funerals, and the only thing I%26#039;ve seen in return is a thank you card.

You don%26#039;t need to write anything too lengthy. Just something in your own words, like:

The flowers you sent were a beautiful gesture. During this difficult time, it reminded our family that others are keeping us in their thoughts and prayers. Your thoughtfulness is truly appreciated.


During this difficult time, the flowers you sent were a beautiful reminder of the love and support of family and friends. Your thoughtfulness is apprectiated.

If you wanted it to be a little more personal, you could add something where the asterisks are, such as %26quot;S/he was a wonderful friend and caring person, and all the family have been deeply moved by the many tributes we have received.%26quot;
