It is traditional to send out thank you notes to all the people that helped your family during the time of need. This thank you note should let them know how much you appreciated their support and help. It is important to know who all helped so that no one is left out when you send out the notes. To make sure that no one is forgotten it is helpful to have a note book or journal that people can sign when they stop by to visit. Having every one sign will also help you not to send out repeated thank you notes.
The normal time frame for sending out thank you notes after a funeral is anywhere from one to three weeks. This will allow you to continue to grieve before you have to start writing out the notes. This can be a timely process so you may want to ask for help from everyone in the family if at all possible.
A thank you note should be sent to anyone who brought food or spent time with the family. Those who sent flowers to the funeral should also be given a thank you note. The thank you note does not have be real specific because people will understand that you were a little busy planning the funeral and with the emotions that are commonly associated with the death of a loved one. You only have to send one thank you note to business, which expresses their concern, as long as you include everyone in the note.
Here is a short sample of what would be appropriate to write in the thank you cards: Thank you for the support you showed the family in our time of need. We greatly appreciate your concern and help. Thank you
